In a suburb outside of Houston, TX, a man wearing a George H.W. Bush mask robbed the White House supermarket before robbing two other stores last
week. No one was injured in the robberies, though people did note the political irony.
Rosenberg, Texas, police say a man wearing a George H.W. Bush mask held up the White House supermarket (search) and two other stores last week,
according to local television reports.
The pistol-packing phony president made the White House grocery his first destination last Monday morning, according to KPRC-TV of Houston, before
moving on to Fast Addy's convenience store about 15 minutes later.
The masked gunman was described as a Hispanic male, 5'9", between 200 and 250 pounds — considerably shorter and portlier than either the 6'4"
ex-president or his son, the exceptionally fit current occupant of the real White House.

The political irony of this man's choice couldn't have been coincidence. The suspected motivation for the robbery is drugs, but one has to wonder
if the mask and choice of venue to rob was not also meant to amuse or make a political statement on top of things.
All the news companies have been having a hey day with that article's title. Fox News has "Bush Holds Up White House", a blog has "President Bush
Robs White House", though Yahoo News isn't quite as much fun. The article titles got me to click, lemme tell ya!
I hope they get both Bush Sr and Bush Jr for grand theft and larceny, etc etc.
Down the page from the MaskedBush article you find this:
Woman Busted for Carrying Fish Under Skirt
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — There must have been something fishy about the way she walked.
Customs officials said Monday they stopped a woman as she arrived Friday in the southern Australian city of Melbourne on a flight from Singapore and
found 51 live tropical fish allegedly hidden in a specially designed apron under her skirt.
I love the Out There segment of Fox News. They have some great, bizzare, and quite amusing news stories. It's kind of like the Darwin Awards of the
news, in many cases, but without all that death. Just stupidity and bizzareness, like this Point Break spoof.
In the Out There section now, there's a story about a homeless dude who started charging people $5 for parking in a free parking lot, human pac-man
is coming to Chicago, some cop pulled over his own stolen car, etc. Funny stuff!
