Bank Robbers Now Look Like Your Dad
Ah, a Tuesday afternoon in a Spirit of Texas Bank branch down on Bay Area Boulevard. Someone's dad is calmly waiting on line, wearing the usual dad outfit of a sport shirt, "I'm retired" stubble and -- wait a second, what's that he's holding in his hand?
Your Dad's robbing a bank!
The FBI says this guy walked into a bank branch in the 1000 block of Bay Area Boulevard this afternoon at about 1:30 p.m.
"He pulled out a black pistol and demanded money," the FBI said. "The teller provided him with some cash and he exited the bank. He was seen leaving the area in a dark colored, possibly four-door vehicle. "

He then drove off to bitch about kids these days. No, he didn't have The Clash ("Daddy was a bank robber...") on his car stereo. Although like in the song, this robber did not hurt nobody. Or anybody, to be more grammatical than the song.
