It’s only March, but we already have a winner for the 2011 Darwin Award.
A man tried to rob a convenience store in South Carolina but ran into unanticipated difficulties with his ski mask.
Video footage shows the white suspect trying multiple times to pull a ski mask over his hand while waving his gun in one hand. But the fabric kept slipping through his butter fingers.
After several attempts, the gunman thought better of it and began walking out of the store. Suddenly he found success with the mask and, thinking he’s now safely disguised (never mind the security footage), turned on his heel to attempt his robbery one more time.
Alas, he couldn’t decipher the mysteries of the cash register, and finally ended up fleeing with nothing. [Source]
He is still at large, which means that the police probably deserve even more the 2011 Darwin Award.
