If They Only Had a Brain

On Dec. 6, two armed men blew into an Arkansas business owned by 74-year-old Shirley Cornett. Maybe they thought she and her husband would turn into defenseless as munchkins after they announced the robbery, but once Cornett pulled her .38 Spl. revolver she opened a big can of flying monkey fury.

A local station's video shows the thugs' classically choreographed first move. A pair of suspects have been arrested and charges stemming from the incident could bring the house down on them-suspicion of capital murder and aggravated robbery.

The business is C&S Pawn & Gun Shop. Like I said, if they only had a brain.
