Gypsies afoot in Charlottesville

My second laugh of the day comes close on the heels of the first, once again courtesy of The Cavalier Daily.

An off-campus bookstore was robbed yesterday by a team of people who distracted employees and got money out of a safe in an office off the sales floor. Shoppers were able to give excellent descriptions of the assailents.
Those who witnessed the robbery said the group looked like gypsies, Durrette added. -The Cavalier Daily, 8/24/2005

If anyone knows what gypsies look like, let me know. The only image I'm getting is Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
