Gourmet German 'Robin Hoods' give poor a taste of the high life


A GANG of anarchist Robin Hood-style thieves, who dress as superheroes and steal expensive food from exclusive restaurants and delicatessens to give to the poor, are being hunted by police in the German city of Hamburg.

The gang members seemingly take delight in injecting humour into their raids, which rely on sheer numbers and the confusion caused by their presence. After they plundered Kobe beef fillets, champagne and smoked salmon from a gourmet store on the exclusive Elbastrasse, they presented the cashier with a bouquet of flowers before making their getaway.

I'm going to keep my eye out for anarchists dressed as superheroes the next time I'm eating Kobe beef fillets, champagne and smoked salmon, and I suggest you do too.
