fork over the cash-- I have a knife! no, wait, I have a...

He needed a little help in the area of weapon selection and intimidation training. Earlier this week, an unidentified armed man attempted to rob a bank in Lublin, Poland.

The man burst into the bank and showed his weapon. He clearly announced, "This is a stick up."

Frightened customers fell to the ground and expected the worst. Then they noticed the man's weapon. It wasn't a gun or even a knife. It was a spoon. A standard stainless steel spoon.

It is never a good sign for a bank robber when he hears his "victims" begin to snicker and then to laugh. But that is precisely what happened.

Since none of the bank agents (or anyone else, for that matter) seemed intimidated by the spoon, our would-be bank robber decided it was time to make his get-away.

The man exited the bank with no money and plenty of unwanted laughs. However, the police are not laughing. They are trying to find the "ginger-haired" man and arrest him for attempted robbery.

Ananova quotes Police spokeswoman, Renata Laszczka-Rusek: "It's a weird one but he broke the law and we want to find him."
