Out, Out, Damned Post
Looking for sweet-smelling thugs? A postmistress in England drove away two gun-wielding robbers using a can of air freshener. Margaret Taylor, of Manchester, fought off two men who burst into her post office waving a gun and a knife. She picked up a bottle of Oust - which claims to do “more than just eliminate odours'' - and sprayed the raiders in the face. The fumes proved too much for the balaclava-wearing robbers and they ran for their car.
FOOTNOTE: The baffle of balaclava.
