Bob & Carol and Ted & Alice
Eighty-years ago, pretty much this minute, two well dressed young ladies (we'll call them Carol and Alice) entered a Brooklyn drug-store and asked to see some perfume. Store proprietor William Blair took out a number of bottles for the women to look over. While this was taking place two fellows (Bob and Ted) entered the store and pulled out their guns and told Blair to put ‘em up. Once Blair had them up the dames helped the guys clean Blair's register out of a hundred bucks and the $600 ring he was wearing. All four then skedaddled in one of them there automobiles and went to Vegas where they almost had a fourway but thought better of it and then went outside and mixed with a bunch of different people while Dionne Warwick's "What the world needs now, is love, sweet love." played.
