Bank Robber Disguises Himself As A Tree

...and succeeds!...sort of.

Police are on the hunt for a man who robbed a New Hampshire bank on Saturday disguised as a tree, according to MyFoxBoston.com.

The suspect walked into the Citizen's Bank in Manchester with tree branches duct taped to his body and demanded money from the teller.

The teller filled a bag with cash and the suspect took off. A dye pack inside the bag exploded, the Web site reported.

Manchester cops described the man as a white male, between 45 and 50 years old, wearing glasses and a blue shirt.

Of course, he must have carefully studied this film on "How Not To Be Seen":

So when he's caught and convicted and standing before the judge for his sentence, is he going to promise to turn over a new leaf?

No doubt the judge will be probing for root causes.

If he's not caught he'll probably branch out into other criminal activities.

I'm surprised 1960s model Twiggy hasn't popped in with a pun.

We need to nip this thread in the bud.
