I just wish I knew what he said to the teller. Was it the basic “Gimme all the money” or did he put on a James Earl Jones voice and say something silly like “Luke, I am your bank robber…” Awesome.

North Korea gets pizza. “Chefs were sent to Italy for training by leader Kim Jong-il, who said North Koreans should be able to try the world’s best foods.” It’s official: Monkeys practice better dental hygiene than me.
