Armed Robber Escapes with Sex Doll

I love the way that headline makes it sound like the doll was his partner..., um, I mean moll. I have this image of the doll driving the getaway car.

I also enjoy the subtext of surprise that those things are so expensive.

Wow, how much of a boner do you need to have before you rob a store for a sex doll.

And this is why that surgeon general who said health class should teach masturbation was right.

I feel bad for the female store clerk. He pulled a knife? He made her jump the counter? Like the potential creep factor of being a woman working the night shift at a sex store wasn't bad enough.

I'm glad she got away. And even among violent sex criminals, his behavior is freaky. "Small talk," followed by assault with a knife, and then, "Oh, well, I'll take the blow up doll instead."

My wholly uninformed diagnosis is "meth head." This is the midwest.

Ah, I hadn't thought of that. Sounds likely.

Also I like the braindead comment in the story that there was no sign of forced entry. The store was open when he came in, moron!

I know! And it wasn't like that wasn't covered in the very same paragraph.

I feel for that clerk. Chased by a weirdo with a knife, and then having to field questions about whether there were signs of forced entry in a business-hours robbery. *rolls eyes* She should get hardship pay.

It's nice that they took the time to correct the information about the value of the doll, too.
