Funny Excuse When a man came into a New Orleans, La., restaurant at 4:00 a.m. and announced a robbery, one of the employees recognized his voice. After being called by his first name, the robber pulled off his hood and said the robbery was just a joke. Chad Caron, 22, probably figured he was home free when the employee sat down with him for a chat, but the owners called the sheriff. Caron told deputies he “only did this as a joke and didn’t mean to scare anyone,” but they didn’t buy that. He has been charged with attempted robbery. (New Orleans Times-Picayune) ...Then the joke’s on him. Available in This is True: Book Collection Vol. 11
