Going Ape

OK...sometimes you find you just need a bit of levity when it comes to the news. And this story just makes me laugh. Why this suspect is going bananas over bananas who knows, but it sure would be interesting to find out. When we do, I will let you know. ______________________ AP-WI-ODD--Banana Bandit,0104 Fond du Lac police look for would be banana bandit FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- Fond du Lac police continue a fruitless search for a man wearing an ape costume who has attempted to steal foam banana displays from inside local gas stations. Capt. Steve Klein says Thursday someone donning an ape costume entered two gas stations Wednesday trying to steal the displays and police have received several calls about the suspect hanging around town. While Klein acknowledges that the action may seem funny, they want to talk to the person behind the ape suit because they aren't sure what the suspect's motives are.
