Man Robs Bank with Bouquet of Flowers

A man in New York City successfully robbed a bank. His weapon of choice was a bunch of flowers:

A security camera photo published by the police showed the suspect standing at the cashier's window holding the bouquet while handing over the note, which reportedly read: "Give me all your hundreds, fifties, don't be a hero."

The man fled the scene after the teller handed over $440 (£288).

The New York Post reported that it was the second known bank heist by the suspect, who last week robbed a different New York bank armed with a potted houseplant.

If I remember right, bank tellers are instructed to do what a bank robber says, even if they don't appear to be armed.

Dead employees and patrons are more costly to a bank in the long run than whatever a teller has in her till which, as you can see here, wasn't much.

That wouldn't even pay my rent.
