back to article Cashpoint mugger flashes distractionary chesticles

Two Eastern European women last Saturday relieved a Parisian of €300 by using a cunning jub-based attack on their hapless victim. The man was intercepted at a bank in Paris's 6th arrondissement by the pair of female ne'er-do-wells, one of whom demanded cash and tried to distract him using a newspaper as he extracted wonga from …

I hear a popular smartphone was involved in calling the cops. The call ended prematurely, much like him..

Were they, perchance, Bulgarian?

Political Correctness

Looking at the referenced newspaper article I notice that, in French, a victim is always feminine (La victime). Must be terribly difficult for the PC brigade in France mustn't it? Having an implied gender for every noun. The article itself seemed more intent upon not making a big deal out of the fact that the women were "from eastern lands". An intention that was not reflected by the commenters though. Most of whom wanted to let said ladies know that they'd be using their local cashpoints at lunchtime.

I, for one, welcome our dusky eastern maiden crotch grabbing cash extracting overladies...

Re: Political Correctness

So all male victims of crime also get emasculated. Poor bastards. What's French for "insult to injury"?

You're not the only one who reads French

I read French, too. While most of those making comments were only interested in joking around, two were interested in the women's origin. One wrote of the problem caused by open borders and the other pointed out that the women were no doubt gypsies.

And indeed, the gypsies, or Roms as they call them here in France, are causing quite a bit of trouble, especially as of late. At least the government here is talking about doing something about them. The UK government, no doubt, would be talking about giving them hugs or something equally politically correct.

Add insult to injury

In French that would be

"ajouter l'insulte à l'injure"

Even getting out 10 euros at a time, it still adds up.

The last time I played with Playmobil...

...(a while ago) the male and females were distinguished mostly by their hair, with the females all being spectactularly flat-chested. Might need some augmentation with a lighter, toothpick, and an old polystyrene cup in order to make this story work in Playmobil!

The Real Story

Man spunks €300 (if you'll forgive the popular vernacular) at a lap-dancing bar and dreams up cunning ruse to explain it away to the wife. It's even based in truth, what with the exposed boobage and crotch based fondling, so the lie is easier to maintain.

This reminds me of a cheap version of Blaise's famous Nailer.

Didn't think it would work in these benighted and more sophisticated times, so I am cheerful that breasts can still freeze essential parts of the brain! Very sweet.

May have actually gotten a deal

You'd spend more than 300 Euros in a strip club and not get felt up. Sounds like a bargain to me.

Is "EAOE" another of these wretched American initialisms?

For the correct British usage is "E&OE".

But think of the kids.

I wanted to post this to the latest article, about the hooligans being young'uns so will go for "they should be protected cause they're soo young". But the thread was closed. Thanks Miss Bee :-( I guess you are thinking of the kids.

Around here the young f-wits, think they can do anything, cause all will be forgiven. Its bad when a kid bludgeons his ex into a vegtable state, with a tomahawk, and then claims she asked to die.

I think a bit more common sense is required in the justice system. Cause around here at least, it's not working...

Anon.. Cause Im thinking of the kids.
