    Man Tries to Rob Gun Shop with Toy Pistol
    Jul 7, 9:28 am ET

    PARIS (Reuters) - Armed with a toy pistol, a would-be robber picked himself an unlikely target in central Paris -- a gun shop.

    Staff at the Armurerie Gare de l'Est in the French capital immediately identified the weapon as harmless. The 26-year-old Mauritanian was subsequently arrested, Le Parisien newspaper reported on Friday.

    He was unlucky -- earlier this year a fake rocket launcher was successfully used in a break-out from a prison on the unruly Mediterranean island of Corsica.

    A member of staff at the gun shop confirmed there had been a robbery attempt, but declined to give further details.

    Never show up for an armed robbery without arms.

    Well, this story puts a serious damper on my plan to take over France with a squirt gun.

    Oh well, who would want to be neighbors with Germany anyways.

    A Super Soaker or two should do the job.
    Of course the French usually wet themselves at the prospect of battle.
