Hilarious Headline of the Day.

You cannot make this stuff up!  Toilet Paper Bandit Sought-- Man wipes out Nebraska convenience store wearing two-ply disguise.  Ah, the number of puns that come to mind...

If only criminals here were smart enough to come up with such a clever disguise, I might be out of a job.  Seriously-- EVERYONE has and uses toilet paper.  You can get it anywhere.  There is literally nothing distinguishing about it, nor does it hold fingerprints.  It would not be suspicious to have fibers from toilet paper on your hands.  Genius!  But, fortunately for me, my clients are not so smart.  They like people (including cops) to know when they've done something stupid and illegal.

Oh, and apparently more criminals than just this particular one in Nebraska are resourceful and inventive.  The Lincoln PD also had a run in with the Beer Box Bandit.  Yes, it's what it sounds like.  Some dude not too long ago robbed another Lincoln, Nebraska convenience store wearing an empty Bud Light box on his head.  However, he was a bit less enterprising than our Toilet Paper Bandit.  BBB only stole 9 packs of cigarettes (not even a whole carton??), for a grand total of $50, while TPB hit the jackpot by emptying the cash register.

Law enforcement doesn't think that these two brilliant thieves are the same person.  If they are, he clearly got smarter by his second attempt.  What's next?  Aluminum foil?  A Garbage bag?  I assume that he's smart enough to use porous materials to cover his face to prevent asphyxiation, but you never know.  That certainly would make his apprehension easier.
