Yeah, stealing is wrong, but how can you not root for criminals this bizarre and audacious? Two crooks, perhaps stepping out of some kind of time portal, stuck up a motel with a musket. One perp was five feet tall.

His accomplice? Five foot four. Whether these were little men with Napoleonic complexes (to go along with their Napoleonic gun) attempting to compensate with a museum piece rifle, or two seriously under-supervised children, is unknown. But the surveillance footage shows the anachronous assault was highly unsuccessful—both dudes leave empty handed, perhaps anxious to make it to their getaway horse-drawn wagon. [CBC via Boing Boing]

Update:

Comedian/rapper/bizarre genius Andy Milonakis has contacted Jason to claim responsibility for the vintage stickup. The weird gets weirder!
