Robber Uses Banana in Store Robbery

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Philadelphia released security camera footage of a robber pocketing a banana at a store and using the fruit to simulate a gun to rob the shop.


The Southwest Detective Division said the man took the banana from the counter at Tejada Grocery Wednesday and held it in the front pocket of his hooded sweatshirt, making it appear as if he had a handgun."


This will not go down in history as one of the greatest heists of all time ...

Homeboy makes his getaway in a bicycle, and he`s wearing a hoodie but he fails to pull the hood over his head to at least partially hide his face.

The lazy moron is so ill-prepared that he grabs a banana from the counter to simulate a gun to rob the store.

Moral of this story: Selling bananas should be prohibited, it`s flat out racist! If a black teen buys and eats a banana it`s an offensive caricature, and if he steals it to simulate a gun that`s stereotypically thuggish behavior.
