Well

What an arse of a robbery attempt that was!

so he took off his clothes

Do we presume he had a change of clothing with him, or was he nicked in the nude? In which case, the police officers should have been able to spot the cash rather sooner than they did.

Presumably now his troubles are over, as he will be vacationing for a couple of years at taxpayers' expense.

But that crisp new NZ currency did not deserve to die.

Plastic money

I thought New Zealand notes where plastic? if so that may have been pretty uncomfortable, not saying that a fist full of paper cash up the backdoor wouldnt hurt, just plastic would be a whole new level.

Bum rap or piles of cash

Cattle rustling I've heard of but arse rustling?

Or maybe it was him putting money where he usually speaks from.

New Zealand police...

suspect that more of the loot may be hidden up the thief's rear end. When asked by a reporter about the current situation, the Chief of police commented "The last time we looked there was no change".

@ Tom

If it was plastic, it could have just been wiped clean rather than destoyed. The cash I mean, not his arse.

Apparently...

...the most compelling evidence against the suspect came after he was fingered during the identity parade.

pathetic punning

If only he hadn't stuffed it up, the law wouldn't have fingered him and he'd have made a clean getaway.

I'm going, I'm going ... wonder if there's a job for me at The Sun.

I never done it officer

I just have a rich diet.

So thats where I put my inheritance.

I'm a stripper it and this was a tip.

So you snort coke the other end, that's what I've been doing wrong all these years.

Well I had to put it somewhere I took all my clothes off and burned them.

I really do shit money.

I offered the money to a pretty girl and she told me where to put it.

I'm innocent I tell you, innocent!

@Mr B

Sorry? nah, ambiguity is the meat of the Reg readers (no, not knob meat, cow meat). It sure gives 'piles of money' a different meaning.

Still it was a great crack for a while but got a bum deal out of it in the end.

Still, not many would have had the cheek, though it's an ill wind etc.we tc.

"Would sir like to leave a small something as a deposit"

Innuendo - why does it always sound as if it means something else?

Look on the bright side

After that little performance, he'll be a very popular boy in prison.

I'd have gladly paid him two grand to get a front row seat.
