Familiar Knickers
2001 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(October, Norway) A drunken robber, masked in his own underpants, presented a bank teller with a demand note and absconded with the money. But his gains were short-lived: his wife's name was written on the reverse side of the paper.

The 47-year-old man said he didn't remember the robbery, but had a suspicion he'd been up to no good when he saw the picture of the robber in the morning paper. The masked man was wearing a familiar pair of knickers, and our forgetful thief found an unexplained wad of cash in his pocket.
