Man foils bank robbery after assuming it was an April Fool

For all you April Fool haters, proof that good can come from the endless pranks:

Brian Davison, 32, put his hand inside his back pack then told cashiers: “I’ve got a gun. Seriously I’ve got a gun – hand over the ******* money”.

But as terrified cashiers prepared to hand over a bundle of notes, Mr Stewart calmly walked up to the robber and said: “It’s April the 1st isn’t it mate? It’s April Fool’s Day”.

When Davidson said to him “I’ve got a gun I will shoot you”, Andrew replied “go on then shoot me” and grabbed the bag from his hands.

Cool stuff. Though according to the article, it was actually March 31st, so he kind of April fooled himself by not knowing the date.

Edit: And the bag was empty! Oh, what a tangled web we weave.
