The Great Spaghetti Bank Robbery
The headline sounds like it should be a Ray Stevens song, but comedy it’s not.
A 430 pound woman entered a Detroit area bank and claimed to have a bomb in her purse. It turned out that what she really had were two cans of spaghetti sauce.

A woman of her considerable…uh…girth…shouldn’t be too difficult to track down.The Michigan Department of Corrections say Neal is black, 5-foot-7 and has graying hair. She escaped in a car driven by an unidentified male. Authorities have not said just how much money Neal got away with.
