Amok Time

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A surveillance picture released by police Wednesday afternoon shows a man armed with what appears to be a small Klingon sword, holding up a 7-Eleven convenience store.

Okay...this cracked me up.

You all know how much I love "Star Trek." But even I don't have a Klingon sword laying around! (Although I do have a cute little tribble.) I suppose the guy was just sitting around, thinking...

How am I going to get my next score? That little prick Eddie owes me money, but I know he ain't got it, either. Hell, I guess I'll have to rob some joint. That 7-11 down the street will work. No gun, though...maybe I can carve one...or just hold my fingers in my pocket and pretend...HEY! I forgot about my Klingon sword! That thing is AWESOME, and really mean-lookin', y'know? Yeah, that's what I'll use!

Wow. Now what I'd really like to see is someone rob a place using a phaser. "This baby ain't set on STUN, y'know! Now hand over the cash!"

Thanks for the tip, Joann! It started my day off with a smile!

Also a big thanks to Milwaukee Dan #2, the chief cook and bottle washer at The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind. He asked me to make a guest entry, and considering that I think he's one of the finest writers I've come across here, I was very flattered. Thank you, Dan...thank you verra much.


  1. How funny and very creative. The things some people will use to get what they want. I have something for you over at my reads. Take care and enjoy your Friday,

  2. It's amazing just how dumb criminals get - this is up there with the burglar who broke into a store through the roof, couldn't get back out, called 911 & told the police dispatcher he was a burglar & where he was. When police arrived, he was still standing there on the phone.

    I always love dumb criminal stories! Thanks for sharing.


  3. I believe that is one of the silliest things I have ever saw!!
