Man arrested in Texas for trying to cash $360 billion check

That's a lot of zeroes.

This one's from Texas:

FORT WORTH, Texas - Charles Ray Fuller must have been planning one big record company. The 21-year-old North Texas man was arrested last week for trying to cash a $360 billion check, saying he wanted to start a record business. Tellers at the Fort Worth bank were immediately suspicious — perhaps the 10 zeros on a personal check tipped them off.

Fuller, of suburban Crowley, was arrested on a forgery charge. He was released after posting $3,750 bail.

Fuller said his girlfriend's mother gave him the check to start a record business. But bank employees who contacted the account's owner said the woman told them she did not give him permission to take or cash the check.

In addition to the forgery count, Fuller was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possessing marijuana. Officers reported finding less than two ounces of marijuana and a .25-caliber handgun and magazine in his pockets.

This is the type of bank robbery that you usually see in cartoons. Maybe somebody should inform this guy that anvils aren't toys and that mice aren't able to entertain us by playing musical instruments.

Changing gears completely, it's been quite a while since we posted anything about our main man Pan. So today, we have uploaded a video of Pan attempting to play tennis. While he's not exactly Pete Sampras, it's still pretty funny.

Naturally, we follow that video with footage of an elephant painting a picture:
