In a nightmare come to life, a yellow Teletubby, otherwise known as Laa-Laa, broke into a home in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania at 2am. But the banana-colored creature didn't want money, jewelry, or a TV set, Laa-Laa just wanted to fill his tummy. Police said that he went straight for the victim's refrigerator and dumped Chinese food into a "man purse." Screw the ski mask. It's Halloween. Get creative with your robbery apparel.
