I’m Gumby Dammit !

No…… No way……

SAN DIEGO — A man in a Gumby suit tried to rob a Rancho Peñasquitos convenience store early Monday but failed to do anything more than lose some change.

The costumed character and another man walked into the 7-Eleven on Carmel Mountain Road near Paseo Montalban about 12:30 a.m., San Diego police Detective Gary Hassen said.

Store surveillance video shows the man coming into the store in the green costume with his hands raised over his head.

The man in the suit walked up to the counter and told the clerk, “This is a robbery,” Hassen said. The employee thought it was a joke and responded that he had to clean and did not have time for him.

The would-be robber insisted that he was serious and then tried to reach in his pocket as if he were looking for a weapon, Hassen said.

He was stymied by the costume though and after fumbling around for a few minutes he gave up and walked out leaving behind 26 cents that fell from his pocket.

You can’t fix stupid.
