Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems or, On The Topic of Pictures Being Worth Thousands of Words

We had to share some local Los Angeles news from earlier this week.

On Wednesday morning in northern L.A. county, several men robbed a Bank of America in Canyon Country.  The suspects fled with police in hot pursuit. 

Realizing that the odds were not in their favor, the suspects began to throw handfuls of cash out of their moving car.

I think that the story is best experienced visually, with captions where necessary:

A mob scene ensues:

Imagine what was being said here; the indignation in the hand gestures says it all:

See, this is why you should always think about the clothes you wear outside.  The agony of disappointment on this young lady’s face is unmistakable:

Some people in attendance were in good spirits, including the cops:

The caption from the L.A. Times website reads in part, “Members of the crowd dance and shout ‘We want money!’ as they gather on Vernon Avenue in South Los Angeles.”

Well, we knew this day was coming. At least people who live in my neighborhood did (I swear, we have more cats per capita than anyplace else in SoCal).

No seriously, this was from the “cat premiere” for the new Puss in Boots movie.  This is a real picture, with real “trained cats” and Antonio Banderas.
