Wearing a Mask Ain't Much of a Disguise...

...if the mask doesn't cover your distinctive, Groucho Marx-like eyebrows:

A man who raided a betting shop was brought to justice today… because of his eyebrows.

Paul Shough, 28, was jailed for six-and-a-half years after threatening staff at a Coral store in Birmingham with an imitation gun, and managed to escape with £200 in cash.

He had covered his face before attempting the crime, but police were able to track him down thanks to his distinctive eyebrows and heavily-lined forehead.




In this case, he'd have been advised to cover the upper half of his face, I guess. Or shave those eyebrows off.

He should have worn a burqa.

@Expatriate Owl: I wonder if the UK police would have charged him with a hate crime if they'd caught him in a burqa?
