"Give money, I gun"

Robber with grammar problem admits to Fridley bank heist


A grammatically challenged ex-con has admitted that he robbed a TCF Bank in a Cub Foods in Fridley.

Joe Nathan Michael, 48, of Fridley, pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in Minneapolis to the heist on May 20, 2010, which briefly netted him about $2,000.

According to the plea agreement:

Michael gave the teller a note that read "Give money, I gun," leaving her confused about what he wanted.

Comment: Echoes Woody Allen's "I have a gub" (Take the Money and Run)

BANK TELLER #1: "Does this look like “gub” or “gun”?" BANK TELLER #2: "Gun. See? But what’s “abt” mean?" VIRGIL STARKWELL: It’s “act”. A-C-T. Act natural. Please put fifty thousand dollars into this bag and act natural." BANK TELLER #1: "Oh, I see. This is a holdup?"
