British man arrested in Warsaw ‘trying to hold up a bank armed only with paper’

A British man was arrested in Warsaw after allegedly trying to rob a bank using prewritten notes because he could not speak Polish, local media reported.

The 33-year-old man approached the cashier at the bank in centre of the Polish capital and produced a picture of gun he had drawn himself.

    Was the robber hoping to get a drawing of money?

    Really? Are you sure it wasn’t a Polish guy robbing a bank in Britain? Because we may have to rethink a long history of Polish jokes…

    I wonder if one of the notes said “my shorts are full of eels ” in polish?

    • Well, according the article, the Polish teller wasn’t threatened by the man.

      I think those Polish jokes need to become English jokes.
