As We See It

Would you rather rob a casino wearing a helmet or a mustache?


Two months ago, a judge’s son allegedly stole $1.5 million in chips from the Bellagio wearing a motorcycle helmet. Last week, some guy grabbed $32,000 in chips from the Rio wearing a fedora and a fake mustache. Which makes for the better casino robbery disguise? Let’s look and see:

Fedora & Fake Mustache Combo Pro: If you’re escaping the casino in a time machine, you can fly to the 1920s and blend right in. Con: The mustache gives you no coverage—it’s like being naked but wearing a belt.

Motorcycle Helmet Pro: When you demand the money, you’ll look like a badass—or an evil Judge Dredd. Con: Have you seen Judge Dredd?
