NOT even Simple Simon was this bumbling.
While the young boy in the popular nursery rhyme admitted he had no money to pay the pieman, a late-night customer had another idea when he allegedly threatened and robbed a Currimundi baker late Saturday night.
Police said the baker at Pacific Haven Bakery on Buderim St was confronted by an unarmed man covering his face with a t-shirt about 11.45pm.
He allegedly made threats and demanded personal belongings and cash.
They said the man made off with cold pies, energy drinks, a pair of oven mitts and a small amount of money believed to be $1500, but not before spilling one of the stolen drinks and threatening the baker once more.
Police were called and a man was discovered a short time later in a nearby car park.
The baker, who is also the store's owner, was not injured during the incident but was left shaken.
A spokesman for Queensland Police said a man allegedly matching the description of the offender had entered the store moments before the robbery to buy food, before leaving.
Police have charged a 39-year-old man from Battery Hill with one count of robbery.
He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today.
