While I’ll admit brandishing a knife at a robber is kind of stupid, it reminds me of a story about a Canadian prime minister who used to grab people by the neck and shove them out of his way.
Think that’s a knife? Takeout owner foils attempted robbery
The masked man entered the Lucky Star takeout in Corner Brook on Tuesday night, and used a small knife to demand money.
Owner Ben Fong went behind the cash register, but then responded much like the Paul Hogan character in the 1986 movie, with a line to match the famous “That’s a knife” catchphrase.
Fong normally uses his knife â.. the blade is 25 centimetres, or about 10 inches, in length â.. for cutting meat.
