Between a fellow who is stupid and honest and one who is smart and crooked, I will take the first. I won’t get much out of him, but with that other guy I can’t keep what I’ve got.

-Stupid bank robber’s note to teller, written on his paystub
The FBI arrested a man at his Carey Illinois home after he left a threatening note written on his pay stub at the Chicago bank he allegedly robbed. Luckily for the bank, this fool’s attempt to recycle paper led them directly to him because the pay stub contained his name and address. There is no word about the $400 dollars he made off with or whether he secured a lawyer.
The economy is bad. We should give this guy the benefit of the doubt. Maybe the pay stub doubled as an excuse note so the teller would understand his motive.
