Top Ten Most Ridiculous and Unbelievable Weapons People Have Actually Tried to Rob a Store With

Guns and knifes are all too common, some people I've seen on TV and elsewhere try for some things much stranger.

The Top Ten

1 A toilet plunger

Why would this happen?

You could always suffocate the clerk until she gives you the money, if that counts... - Turkeyasylum

Happened in New York - NuMetalManiak

2 A "hand" gun

Spoiler: the robber's gun isn't real, it's his own hand. - NuMetalManiak

Dumbass - Mcgillacuddy

Yes, Heard bout this.
Criminal: This is a robery! Put your hands in the air!
*everyone laughs* - Martinglez

3 A palm tree branch

You probably saw this one on World's Dumbest. It's hilarious too. - NuMetalManiak

Oh my God this list is fantastic - bobbythebrony

4 A banana

In NC. A robber tucked it under his shirt even, giving it the impression of a pistol, but it didn't work of course. - NuMetalManiak

5 A PlayStation 3 controller

Similar to the banana one above. - NuMetalManiak

6 A spoon

Not as effective a weapon as a knife.

I've actually cut myself with a spoon before. It hurt a lot

I would use a fork but it wasn't on the list so this dangerous spoon got my vote.
Nice list by the way.

Was it the Ginosaji?

7 A hand grenade

You don't rob someone with something that destructive. - NuMetalManiak

8 A can of tomato sauce

This actually succeeded somewhat in that the criminal got the money by making it a bomb threat, despite NOT actually having a bomb in it. - NuMetalManiak

9 A potato

My kind of weapon. - Puga

10 A zucchini

The Contenders

11 A Wiimote
12 A wiffle ball bat
13 Waffle Iron
