The One That Got Away

Headline: Thief battered in fish shop
CANBERRA (Reuters) - A man who attempted to rob an Australian fish and chip shop found himself on the losing side when the angry shop owner threw fish batter and hot oil at him.

Hopefully the scales of justice will tip on the side of the shop owner. But just in case, he'd better hire himself a good de-fins attorney.

I don't know about the supposed cause for the oil-tossing ... maybe the shop owner did it just for the halibut.
