German Supermarket Cashier Repels Robbers with Cheese

German Supermarket Cashier Repels Robbers With Cheese

You can't get me to say anything bad about cheese, but I figured its uses were limited to sandwiches, gratins, and nachos. (Mmmm, nachos!) Not so! Apparently, if you are as quick on your feet as this cashier in Berlin, you can foil robbers with cheese, too! Three masked men entered the store where 50-year-old Martina Bolle works. They demanded money, and instead of caving in to their demands, Martina "hit one of them smack in the face with a very ripe Gorgonzola," said a witness, "which must have been like getting a dose of natural CS gas." They fled the store on foot, more than likely smelling like feet. Go, Martina! Click here to read about my new hero.

OK. So, maybe I should read all the words in the article next time. As was pointed out: "It's cheese." I like cheese. I especially like cheese when it's planted firmly against the brainpan of a would-be thief. Moscow, Berlin, Capetown, Norfolk . . don't matter. Sorry for the snarky comment. Too much caffeine today.

Thank goodness I have a vacation in a couple days! ;) A Moscow news agency reports on a German Italian-cheese-thrower. We certainly are living a global village.

No, it says the supermarket is in Berlin. It just happens to be a russian news reporter.

Spifteen, that's what the news story says. She's German. She lives in Moscow. Hey, it happens! (Don't ask me why the story says "in Berlin." I'm not this news agency's copy editor! I just report "people using cheese as weapons" news!)

After hearing news of this story, several schools in the US decided to ban cheese from their school lunch menus in an attempt to curb student violence.

A German supermarket cashier . . . working in Moscow? Do you even own a globe?

This proves that criminals like them just look for a target they think is easy or weak. If you just stand up to them, you'll see what cowards they really are. Doesn't matter if you're 50 years old and your up against 3 guys. Everyone has the power to fight back if you just have the guts to do it.
