Today Was Kind Of A Good Day To Rob

Times must be tough on Qo'NoS as a man armed only with a small bat'leth robbed one store and tried to rob another.

As reported by TheDenverChannel.com, a man wearing a black mask threatened the clerk of a Colorado Springs 7-Eleven convenience store with a bat'leth and was able to escape with an undisclosed amount of money.

A half hour later, he tried the same stunt at another 7-Eleven, but the clerk of this store, obviously Romulan, refused to hand over the goods and the robber was forced to leave empty-handed.

The Klingon-wannabe remains at large. The clerks in both stores knew what a bat'leth was. They were unable to say whether the crescent-shaped yard-long weapon was made of metal or was merely a cheap knock-off.

Thanks to Bill Williams for the tip!

I was no where NEAR Colorado Springs. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, petaqpu.

You've been guilty of groan-worthy article titles before, Bonz, but this one is fucking great!

On topic, I like this theif's style, but there's gotta be a more inconspicuous way to rip off a 7-11. Where do you stash that thing during your get away?

I agree. Great article.

P.S.
It is unmanly to share your girlfriend with the Smoke Monster! (even in your dreams!)

I must confess, this was one of the most fun articles I've ever done for TrekToday. I was laughing as I typed.

Did you notice I had to throw in the superior Romulan as the clerk of the second store?

clearly, it's a setup. Klingons do not rob, they plunder!

And they would'ent run from the cops neither! My lord can you imagine what would have happend if he stuck around for the cops to come, and then he went after them with that Bat'leth screaming his lungs out?I can only imagine the faces on those cops would be somesthing like this

It wasn't a Bat'leth... it wasn't even from Star Trek.

I guess Klingons can hold their heads high again.

Kralk here.

Klingons have always and will always hold their heads high. Just because some honorless tera'ngan disgraces his house is no reason for Klingons to be embarrassed. OTOH, this topa should not show his face on Qo'noS anytime soon.

Kralk out, petaqpu.

Oh great. Now I have to spray the TrekToday forum for Kll'inghanns again.

There is not enough ale in the Empire at times...

There's a certain amount of comedy potential in the robber attempting to stick it the waistband of his trousers. (*cue surprised expression*)

There are some things you just have to do, and I think this was one of them.
