Two knives prove better than one when it comes to scaring thieves

Most of us would cower at the sight of a thief trying to rob us.

Not 46-year-old Hunter Hu, a noodle restaurant owner from Brisbane in Australia. Hell no.

Hu was confronted by a 19-year-old man, who passed a note demanding money, pointing to a single knife tucked into his pants.

Hu went to the back of the store, but instead of getting the money, he came out running with two massive meat cleavers - chasing the would-be thief straight out of the store.

"You have one knife? I have two," Hu yelled at the robber as he charged at him, he told 7 News.

We think Hu might relate to The Simpsons' Moe Szyslak's feels on the knife thing.
