Brooklyn Moron Du Jour

There's dumb and there's stupid, but then there's really moronic. We couldn't pass on this story because it's so funny in its own tragic-comic way and less offensive than Brooklyn's teen Hitler. We go to the copy and paste from today's Post:
A bungling bandit - paroled in September for robbing three Brooklyn banks in 2004 - is up to his old tricks, cops say.

Ronald Crudup, 27, was busted Wednesday after he attempted two birdbrained bank robberies right out of Woody Allen's "Take the Money and Run," law-enforcement sources said.

On Halloween, he passed a note at an Apple branch in Carroll Gardens - but the teller refused to read it. They passed it back and forth several times before he got frustrated and fled.

The next day he tried a Chase branch in Park Slope. But the teller asked him if he had a bank card, while passing the note to a colleague - who called cops.

Police busted him after reviewing surveillance tapes.

In 2004, Crudup was convicted of stealing nearly $10,000 from banks.

On one occasion, he was handed $1,200 with a dye pack in the stacks of bills.

When he ran outside the bank, the dye pack exploded, sending bills flying.
The teller asked him if he had a bank card? There must be some interesting things in the Chase training manual.
