That's right. A man dressed up as Gumby tried to rob a San Diego 7-Eleven store ... and got laughed at:
A man in a Gumby suit attempted to rob a 7-Eleven store but became nervous and escaped with only some loose change, the San Diego Police Department said.
The unusual robbery attempt occured Monday night at a store in the Rancho Penasquitos neighborhood.
Initially the clerk thought the man was joking. But when the robber announced he had a gun and began fumbling with his Gumby suit, the clerk changed his mind.
When the robber's apparent accomplice in a car outside honked the car horn, the suspect fled, dropping 27 cents on the floor, police said.
Now if only he had been wearing a Pokey outfit. No one disses Pokey!
