At the bank

Bill and Alf dashed into the bank. Alf looked threatening with a gun while Bill thrust a bag and typed note at the cashier:

Pu £10,000 cash ino his bag

Confused, the cashier called the head clerk and showed him. The head clerk was shocked. “Do you not understand how banks operate, sir? We don’t simply…defecate money!”

The cashier interjected. “No, sir, I think it’s to do with the other one’s bag. His bag, see. ”

“But what’s INO?”

An assistant sidled over. “Sorry, sir, but I love word puzzles. Can I see?”

As the three employees bent over the note, the robbers felt increasingly awkward. The assistant suggested an anagram and they all scribbled away. Bill tried, “This is a robbery!” but they were too absorbed.

When the others launched into cryptograms, Bill and Alf slipped out. They decided to get another typewriter before the next robbery.
