En Garde!

Oh, this is just too much fun not to share:

A man’s attempt to rob a Fort Worth fast food restaurant armed with a big tree branch was thwarted Thursday night when an employee engaged him in a dual with a broom, police say.

Lt. Paul Henderson, police spokesman, said the man walked into the Eddie’s Fried Chicken at 1901 Hemphill about 8:30 p.m., wearing a white rag tied around his face. The man raised the branch over his head -- in what police called “strike position” -- and demanded money from an employee.

The 56-year-old employee grabbed a broom and, according to Henderson, “the two engaged in a battle of wooden swordsmanship.” A second employee rammed the man with a chair, causing him to drop the branch and flee the store.

Where was a customer with a cell phone camera when you really need one?

Where's Daffy Duck when you need him? Thrust! Parry! Although, I guess in this case, they didn't need the duck.
