It’s the Michael Moore bandit:

Academy Award winner Michael Moore’s fame has reached a new level in Monroe, where police are using his name as the moniker for a man suspected in a string of bank heists.

Police dubbed their suspect the “Michael Moore Bandit” because of similarities between the pair’s grooming and dressing habits.

Both men are overweight, middle-aged and have scruffy beards and a penchant for baseball caps, flannel shirts and blue jeans.

In a fitting tribute to the “Bowling for Columbine” director, the robber does not use a gun for his crimes.

But he does pass notes implying he has a gun … a misrepresentation Moore himself would be proud of. Pictures of the fat bastard here.

    1. If the guy really is all that much like Michael Moore, just stake out the area bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants, pizza parlors, c-stores and warehouse food clubs for any sudden spike in purchases (or if he’s buying online, for a sudden depature of a fleet of delivery trucks). The bank robber should turn up in a day or so.

    1. The guys on Blue Collar TV better watch out.  Though if this mutt has sleeves, they should be all right.

    1. No, Habib,

      He demands an interview.  Occasionally people hand him money so he’ll go away.

    1. It can’t be Mikey, after all banks are repositries of capital and as such places that his socialist principles would prevent him from entering; if local tallow plants and lard repositries had been held up with a fictitious free shotgun from a misrepresented savings and loan, however, it’s be time for an APB (All Pork Bulletin).

  1. “Good Morning, Sir! How can I help you? What’s this? A note … Hand me all the money, I have a … what is this … I have a …Gub? I can’t read the writing here. (turns to teller next to him). Hey, can you read this writing, I can’t quite make it out…”
    Poorly recollected from a Woody Allan Movie. He also made a gun from soap, and when he pulled it on the teller, (it had rained on the way to the bank) it was just a ball of suds.
