Guy tries to rob store with hotdog tongs

If you’re gonna use tongs to rob a convenience store, Chinese tongs might come in handy, but not hotdog tongs.

Some nitwit from New Orleans found himself in Fort Smith, Ark., and apparently the only weapons he could find were hotdog tongs.

Surveillance video shows the guy wandering around the store for about 15 minutes. During that time, he wrote a note apologizing, in advance, for trying to rip off the place.

“He attempted to rob the place, but really I guess nobody took him serious enough to actually give him money because of his state of intoxication,” explained Steven Dooly of the Fort Smith police department.

Police say he wanted to get busted and sent to jail so that maybe his family would appreciate him more with him not being around.

He allegedly shoved one of the customers, but no one was hurt. Lucky thing the hotdog tongs weren’t loaded, huh?
