Hug it out.
2007-07-13 12:23:35 PM  
That's goitta be awkward. But also make for great water cooler talk.
2007-07-13 12:23:47 PM  
He needs a better GPS system ...

That's when you just kill everyone to save face.
2007-07-13 12:24:40 PM  
Good thing he wasn't a cop, somebody would have been shot...
2007-07-13 12:24:41 PM  
Stories like this remind of why I come to fark everyday.

He just came for the whine.
2007-07-13 12:25:40 PM  
Sounds to me like he came to the right house after all.
2007-07-13 12:25:55 PM  
Want to take bets on how many farkers shop around for a bottle of Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry now?
2007-07-13 12:26:15 PM  
If only the guests had been armed, they wouldn't have been forced into non-consensual group huggings.

/hopes the guy gets 20 to life
2007-07-13 12:26:47 PM  
That's heart touching. If only all armed robberies would end like this, the world would be a much nicer place!
2007-07-13 12:26:59 PM  
That must have been some damn good wine.
2007-07-13 12:27:19 PM  
thats just too cute
2007-07-13 12:27:47 PM  
Gimmee a hug or I cap this little girl.... mmmm, good wine. I'm just confused...
2007-07-13 12:27:59 PM  
this is truly unbelievable. that so farking insane. i can't believe this is a true story.
2007-07-13 12:28:12 PM  
That's so weird.
2007-07-13 12:28:14 PM  
is it just me, I mean what is with the type of wine and cheese references? He came in he drank some wine ate some cheese and then left.
I don't care what kind of wine they had, it is the fact that the robber whined for a hug that is relevant.

/ok I am just a whine snob
2007-07-13 12:28:27 PM  
The hug, she said, was especially unusual. "They should have squeezed him and held onto him for us," she said.

Um, hug happy or not the man still had a damn gun.
2007-07-13 12:29:32 PM  
I love this story. Too good for awesome.
2007-07-13 12:29:33 PM  
He just wanted a forty (dollar glass of wine).
2007-07-13 12:29:46 PM  
"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me."
2007-07-13 12:30:21 PM  
i call bullshiat
2007-07-13 12:31:36 PM  
So did the fourteen year old girl who had the gun to her head, hug him also?
2007-07-13 12:33:08 PM  
Needs a sappy tag.

I think this story is adorable. I was just saying yesterday how criminals used to have a code of ethics and how the world would be better if they did again. Sure they'd rob you blind but they'd have the decency not to rape and kill you.

+1 for subby
+2 for society
+3 for wine
2007-07-13 12:33:25 PM  
He was all, jk lol!!
2007-07-13 12:33:30 PM  
that was so wierd...
2007-07-13 12:33:40 PM  
change of heart or just damn crazy and off his meds.
you decide....

2007-07-13 12:34:02 PM  
You gotta admit, what a genius way to stop a robbery. "Here have some wine with us." Brilliant!
2007-07-13 12:34:02 PM  
i'll have what she's having.

good stuff.
can't believe i'm addicted to that show.
2007-07-13 12:34:41 PM  
damn liberal criminals, changing their minds mid robbery and hugging people instead
2007-07-13 12:34:43 PM  

I came in here to say the same thing. This story is Fark.
2007-07-13 12:35:24 PM  
Anyone got the "You Gonna Get Raped" pic? Wanna change it to "You Gonna Get Hugged"
2007-07-13 12:36:38 PM  
I checked the source of this article THREE times, thinking that either I accidentally stumbled into The Onion, or there's a "fiction" section of the Washington Post I'm not aware of.
2007-07-13 12:37:29 PM  
I wonder if they'll adopt him now. Tyrone the badass witha heart of gold.
2007-07-13 12:37:36 PM  
Ah, this story is the whole point of coming to Fark.

I wonder if the person whose party was supposedly crashed works for marketing at Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry. How many bottles of wine did this crazy story just sell?
2007-07-13 12:38:01 PM  
No "Behold the power cheese" cliche on the play.

10 yard penalty, no second down.
2007-07-13 12:38:19 PM  
This story is truly the essence of why Fark is even here
2007-07-13 12:39:32 PM  
It's hard to be an effective robber while on E.
2007-07-13 12:39:59 PM  
Every farker could use a group hug. Mandatory or not.

However the correct answer is "kick him in the nuts and discharge the firearm tucked into his pants". "Kick him in the nuts", the correct answer.

/that's just slightly heartwarming
//alcohol cures all problems

In my book nothing wrong with hugging a naked man.
2007-07-13 12:40:26 PM  
It reads more like a fictional story
2007-07-13 12:40:49 PM  
I was at that party, the party sucked and this guy actually picked up my girlfriend.
2007-07-13 12:41:41 PM  
If only the guests had been armed, they wouldn't have been forced into non-consensual group huggings.

DC law forbids any private citizen from posessing a handgun in any form or any other gun unless it is disassembled and unloaded when in the District. In fact, this story must be a fabrication. DC's strict gun laws mean that it's impossible for anyone in the District to commit any gun crime at all.

This is one of the reasons I miss living in DC.

People are so messed up there...and they think they're fine.

But then again living in the countryside aint no picnic either.
