A Wisconsin couple was busted this week after trying to rob a gas station with a Samurai sword.
The Associated Press reports:
The couple needed money to leave town, so they stole a 2000 Mercury Sable on Aug. 8 from the Jeepers Gin Mill and drove to their home to pick up the sword and two stocking caps, police said.
Then Ferreri drove Schmid to a gas station, where a clerk said he threatened her with a “Japanese-style sword” and forced her to give him several hundred dollars from the station’s registers.
The couple is currently sitting in the Portage County Jail on a combined $125,000 bail. Not sure if samurai swords combined even with kung fu and dancing could get them enough dough to cover that.
And the moral of the story is: “Emulating Us is cool, not easy.” or “Don’t play with swords if you aren’t actually a Samurai.”
