    Full-size cardboard figure causes NJ bank standoff LOL

    MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- A standoff at a New Jersey bank is over after police learned a "person" seen inside was actually a full-size cardboard figure.
    Officers went to the PNC Bank in Montgomery Township on Thursday night after an alarm went off. They saw what they thought was at least one person through the windows of the bank, which had its blinds drawn.

    OMG, I was embarrassed the other day when my mom and I went to a store and one of those dudes was just inside the door and it made me jump. I feel much better now.

    "After repeatedly failing to get a response, a SWAT team entered the building and discovered the cardboard figure. It was not immediately clear what set off the bank alarm."


    Right. Remember that Twilight Zone episode where the store mannequins came alive at night... not saying nuttin' else

    I wonder if they took it out and used it for target practice afterwards to get even with making them look so foolish?! (Or did the cardboard cutout get shot before then?!) Hahahaha~
