Arrest the leather mug maker.

I don't care that he probably didn't have anything to do with it. ARREST HIM.

Sounds like they were just really in character. Standard knight behavior.
 
2012-08-05 06:34:19 PM
And there was much taunting.

Yup. Just adding to the authenticity.

It was the ratcatcher. It's always the ratchatcher. Huzzah!

biatche, near France's border with Germany, a spokesman for regional police in Lorraine said.

Oh, that wasn't a typo, it was Fark filter changing it.

'Cuz, you know, we wouldn't want anything offensive posted.

The "Medievales Europeennes de biatche"

I'm a penis?!! NO YOU'RE A PENIS!!!

They were probably Nancy boys.
 
2012-08-05 06:53:01 PM
Were the people responsible sacked?
 
2012-08-05 06:53:09 PM
So, French medieval reenactors got in to the spirit of things by surrendering to thieves and brigands. Sounds like an authentic reenactment. I can't wait for the WW1 and WW2 reenactments.

biatche, please.

Was there no taunting? They should have taunted the knights.
 
2012-08-05 06:56:03 PM
Farkin' hedge knights, always screwing with your cash flow and prestige.

Get out of my demesne.

When reporters asked police what now, they responded, "What now? Let me tell you what now. When we catch them we'll call a coupla hard, pipe-hittin' mimes, who'll go to work on those homies with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. You hear us talkin', hillbilly boys? We won't through with you all by a damn sight. We'll get medieval on your asses!"

Probably some Germans. They are always invading France for this or that reason.
 
2012-08-05 07:02:57 PM
It wasn't a sword it was a dagger, biatche!

And, of course, the French surrendered the money.

You mean they didn't shoot 7 - 12 people?? That's weird.

Why didn't someone yell for the guards?

STOP RIGHT THERE, CRIMINAL SCUM!

The guard would have stopped the thieves, but it's hard for him to run after he took that arrow in the knee.
 
2012-08-05 07:33:41 PM
Actually, this is pretty clever. Where else could you go with a sword and suit of armor without raising eyebrows? I'm torn, because anyone who steals is scum, but anyone clever enough to come up with that idea must be a pretty interesting person.

Yeah, sounds like a really fun robbery.

Better call the History Detectives.

/funniest robbery EVER.

2012-08-05 07:52:26 PM
If they're being authentic, then the guards were among the guys robbing the place.

Biºtche. That sure doesn't sound like the name of a French location (no French words have "tch" that I can think of). Ah, I see, it's close to Germany. That explains it.
 
2012-08-05 08:27:37 PM
I saw Emerson, Lake, and Palmer break out a live biatches Crystal for the first time in 25 years, once.

I think I would have preferred seeing the Dead do Death Don't Have No Mercy, though, in '89, instead.
 
2012-08-05 08:41:37 PM
In the Frenchmen's defense they did tell the thieves that theirmothers were hamster and their fathers smelt of elderberries.
 
2012-08-05 08:57:31 PM
I'm calling BS. How does one get away in armor? It's not like you can run or probably even jog in that shiat. Did they supposedly blend into the crowd? Don't believe that either, there aren't THAT many people running around in armor at these things, and everyone outfits are different.

The NSA responds that, if only somebody else there had been armed with a sword or an axe, they could have returned fire.
