Leave The Knife Take The Cannoli


Prosecutors say just hours after 25-year-old Robert McTernan landed in Boston for a two-week vacation, he entered a bakery in the North End, a largely Italian neighborhood. They say he grabbed a knife and demanded a cannoli from an employee.

    Demanded a ‘conolo’.

    Canoli is the plural.

    And by god are they delicious. Stuffed myself with them in Catania last summer.

    Ah, it was just they didn’t understand the ol Orish lilt. What he actually said was
    “Con all ye…” he was going to finish with wash this knife, but the cops bust in the place and cracked his nut for him.

    “Officers found the Newbridge, Ireland, resident in the kitchen and arrested him on an armed robbery charge. Police could not find the knife.”

    Something quite odd about this, why would you stay on the premises? and how could they lose the knife?
