A man in Utica, New York was arrested yesterday after reportedly trying to rob three local banks using a toilet plunger as a weapon. He was unsuccessful. We're not sure how he expected this to go down, but hey, we just report this stuff.

According to The Huffington Post, the genius, 49-year-old Lawrence Deptola, entered all three banks with the same threat: Either hand over all the money, or he'd come at everyone with a plunger. He was nabbed by cops easily, since no one was afraid to call 911 because a toilet plunger is a lame weapon. Seriously, what did he think he could do, suction everyone's faces off? 

Deptola gave the cops short chase, but in the end was put under arrest and charged with attempted third-degree robbery. Good going, bro.
