This happened a little outside of State College, but I loved the headline on this story in today's Centre Daily Times, the idea of robbing an "adult" store with a "toy" gun:

DUNCANSVILLE, Pa. — Police say two women who tried to rob a central Pennsylvania adult book store with a toy gun didn't fool a clerk, who told them to "get a real gun."
Authorities say 28-year-old Shannon Cheripka, of Glasgow, and 26-year-old Angela Crook, of Coalport, attempted to rob the Adult World store in Duncansville around 1 a.m. Thursday.
Cheripka told police the clerk said, "First, if you're going to rob someone, get a real gun. Second off, you're not getting any money."
Authorities say the clerk chased away the women before police in nearby Logan Township arrested them in a van the clerk had described. The women remained in the Blair County Jail on Friday on robbery and other charges. It was unclear if they had lawyers.
