Haiduc is Romanian for "outlaw," which gives rise to this Robin Hood connection.
Heard in the hot Romanian pop song 'Dragostea Din Tei:"
Alo, salut. Sunt eu un haiduc (Hello, hello. It's me, an outlaw)
Somone who steals from the rich to give to the poor, Robin Hood style.
While on trial for theft, he claimed he was a haiduc--so should be let off.
