How stupid can you get: A guy in Kentucky tried to rob an ice cream store with a stapler….

Gerald A. Rocchi, 32, was arrested shortly after he flashed a chrome-plated stapler at an employee of The Ice Cream Shop in Ashland on Tuesday and demanded money, police said.

Ashland Police Capt. Don Petrella said he didn’t know if Rocchi planned to shoot staples at the shop’s employees or use it as a blunt instrument if he didn’t get the cash.

He must have thought the stapler looks frightening enough. At least he thought about covering his face up with a ski mask. Rocchi was charged with first-degree robbery.
