Dunkin' Donuts Robber Says He Was Just Asking For A Honey Bun

Be sure to always enunciate clearly when you’re placing an order, so that you don’t accidentally rob the cashier. That piece of advice comes from a man in Massachusetts who was charged for attempted armed robbery of a Dunkin’ Donuts back in April. He now claims that the cashier misunderstood him. What he really said was that he wanted a honey bun, not “Give me the money, I have a gun.”

The suspect has been convicted 23 times on other charges, most of which were probably related to mumbling and pronunciation issues.
