A San Diego 7-Eleven was almost robbed by a man in a Gumby suit. He wasn’t quite able to carry out his plan.
Gumby entered the store and swaggered over to the clerk at the counter. He said, “this is a robbery.” The cashier thought it was a joke and went back to cleaning. Gumby tried again. He insisted that he was indeed robbing the store and acted like he was reaching for a weapon in his pockets.
But the costume made searching his pockets difficult. After fumbling around he dropped 26 cents on the floor and gave up.
The cashier didn’t know what Gumby was and described him as a “green Spongebob Squarepants”.
