U.K. Gun Ban so Ineffective, Teletubbies are Armed

While the title is tongue-in-cheek, the story is real. From The London Free Press:
Halloween took a bizarre and frightening turn in London this weekend when a man dressed as a purple Teletubby robbed a woman at gunpoint near the city's core.

London police say a gun-toting man wearing a costume of the pudgy purple television character, named Tinky Winky, confronted the woman near Talbot and Mill streets just after midnight and demanded cash.
What's that quotation about "If you outlaw guns..."? That's right. Only outlaw Teletubbies will have them. Yeah, I couldn't resist.
