Not Rocket Science II

A robber hit a bank in Roettingen, Germany, got away with the loot, and was so confident that he taunted police and newspaper reporters by e-mail. He said witnesses got his age, height, and accent all wrong, and missed that he had a getaway car. Wuerzburg district police simply traced his e-mails to a business in Hamburg, and went there and arrested him. “He was completely shocked,” a police spokesman said. “His game of cat and mouse went all wrong.” (RC/Reuters) ...Nah: he was just confused about who was the cat, and who was the mouse.
