When all else fails, blame Affleck

Back in December, two robbers imitated art ... pretty poorly.

Police just apprehended 18-year-old Seung Woo Park and 20-year-old John Nguyen, who they say stole $68,000 worth of jewelry from S.E. Diamonds in Duluth whilst wearing masks — one of them a clown mask, the other a ... something else mask — and carrying a BB gun.

Their inspiration? One of them told police they modeled the robbery after the Ben Affleck joint "The Town," in which masked men (not clown-masked men) wearing nuns habits and toting machine guns rob a bank. So, basically, their "heist" was nothing like the one in "The Town." I'm going to commit a series of murders and eventually tell the police I was inspired by "Bounce."*

*I'm not really going to do this.
