Who were those masked men?

28 April 2009

Even here in Mazatlan, the tapaboca is rapidly becoming de moda. Restaurant workers often wear them in any season, but they’re starting to pop up as the latest thing in swine flu wear.  Even at the bank.  Which meant it was only a matter of time until someone (in this case, Laura Martinez) found a story like this to post.

Ah, Mexicans… what a creative, resourceful, bunch. In these days of swine flu panic, some have found a much more practical use of surgical masks: …

… a group of tapabocas-wearing gang robbed a local Sanborn’s in Tlalpan this weekend and although the restaurant has a sophisticated video surveillance system, they couldn’t be identified because of the surgical masks.

Swines!

Likely suspects (as likely as any)
