Barber Robs Store Over Bad Beef Jerky

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police say some bad beef jerky upset a Cleveland barber so much that he decided to get revenge by robbing the store where he bought it - even though it`s two doors down from his barbershop.

The barber, who is 6 feet, 3 inches, covered his mouth with a small cloth, walked into the party store in the 4700 block of Broadview Road in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood Thursday evening and demanded money, police said."

The barber has a quick temper, his customers should think twice before complaining of a lousy shave.

The barber`s disguise didn`t fool the owner of the party store, he was recognized and quickly nabbed by the cops. The barber`s lame disguise was as ineffectual as Britney Spears trying to disguise herself by wearing panties for a change.

When the cops nabbed the barber he was eating a pizza that he bought with money taken during the robbery. It`s a good thing the police captured the barber so quickly, or else he might have robbed the pizzeria if the pie didn`t have enough cheese.

The barber robbed a store two doors from his barbershop, and he lives next door to a police station. If this barber is going to moonlight as a robber he needs to move away form the police station and rob businesses that aren`t in his neighborhood.
