### Bank robbery

A burglar burst into a bank and pulled out a gun. He yelled, 'If you guys don't give me all your money, everyone will be maths!'

A brave man asked, 'Don't you mean, 'history'?'

The burglar replied, 'Don't change the subject.'

LOL!

Reminds me of the scene in "Raising Arizona" when they rob the bank:

Gale: Alright ya' hayseeds, it's a stick-up. Everybody freeze. Everybody down on the ground.
Old Man in bank: Well, which is it young feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'ma gonna be in motion. You see...

(a bit later, after they had sorted that one out ...)

Gale: Hey! Where'd all the tellers go?
Teller's voices: We're down here sir.
Evelle: They're on the floor as you commanded, Gale.

Not weak at all, I like it.

### Re: Bank robbery

I have a better bank robbing one, but it includes swear words.

It goes along the lines of...

Criminal enters the bank with a shotgun and shouts: EVERYBODY SHUT THE STICK UP! THIS IS A FUDGE UP!

True story. I changed a word to make it 'suitable'.

Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

It's doubly funny because in this forum all swear words get censored to "math", so that when I read the first line I thought the burglar did use an inappropriate word.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away.
May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
