Holy cowpies, Batman! It's a robbery!

(Batman does not have to be in your story, only the robbery. But if you are so moved...)

Jim: Another Tuesday Night At The Jiffy Stop

Ajit turned to the young man on the other side of the counter. “May I help you?” he asked.

The youth stuck his hand in his sweatshirt pocket and grunted, “This is a stick-up.”

“Do you have a gun?”

“Yeah. It’s in my pocket. Now give me the money.”

“May I see it?”

“No! And quit stalling!”

“Why, I think you don’t really have a gun at all. While I, on the other hand, have a very large gun. Let me show you.” Ajit ducked behind the counter to retrieve his pistol. When he stood up, the robber was gone.

David: An Intricate, Multi-Faceted, And Thoroughly Detailed Conspiracy

We robbed a bank to get the necessary operating capital.

We stole some pensioners’ identities so we could move around unobstructed.

We swiped uniforms from the back of a municipal laundry service truck.

We heisted an armored car not for the money, but for the bulletproof wheels.

We knocked over a National Guard Armory for the heavy firepower and flak vests.

We lifted access codes from the laptop of an inattentive and handsy drunk.

We pilfered various technological odds and ends from “spy supply” stores.

We’re ready. Tonight, the gates of Area 51 will fall. The truth is in there.
