Look out - he's got a ...

... towel! It makes a change from the towel animals Lisa saw on her Alaskan cruise but it's a shame when people use towels not for good but for evil. A man - described in the press as "a speed-fueled bank robber" - used a towel disguised as a gun to "threaten a teller" and carry out "an armed robbery" in Broadbeach QLD last year. After William Edward Hamilton, 33, pleaded guilty, he was sentenced to six years' jail time. I can't help but wonder whether he will be permitted to have terry-towelling in there with him - you'd have to be concerned that given his obviously well-honed towel skills he would be able to fashion some sort of escape equipment ... like a shovel or perhaps even a helicopter!
