I was trying to think of something witty along those lines, but failing. (something about explosions, actually) I knew some farker would come through.

What kind of message can be divined from a bunch of jars filled with chopped prunes, a photo of President Bush, some Homeland Security pamphlets and a Santa Claus toy with a "New York" tag around its neck?

W.T.F.?

/sounds like someone was yanking the post offices' chain.

We've become such sheep that leaving a jar of prunes, a photo of President Bush, some Homeland Security pamphlets and a Santa Claus doll in government offices is now considered a form of civil disobedience. Our Founding Fathers weep....

/Of course, I've done barely more than that. Bah....

"The items were discovered at 6:41 a.m. by a custodian who was a military veteran"

Don't you mean 0641 hours?

FTA "What kind of message can be divined from a bunch of jars filled with chopped prunes, a photo of President Bush, some Homeland Security pamphlets and a Santa Claus toy with a "New York" tag around its neck?"

I would think the message might be, "Be regular, support the president and his war on terrorism and I'll see you at Christmas when you come to visit me in New York, Love, Grandma.

/prunes force evacuation - it's funny 'cause its true.

Of the list of items, only one is a danger to the country. And he will leave office in a little over a year.

And Dude, prunes are no longer the preferred nomenclature... Dried Plums please.

After hearing the list of what was in the box I had a flashback of Marge saying "Homer, I don't know what kind of evening you have planned, but count me OUT!"

Looks like they found the Weapons of Ass Destruction, am I right? Is this thing on?

Not if they use enough prunes. That stuff will move any kind of stubborn shiat

Sounds to me like a sleeper cell of rogue seniors may be behind this. If they shut down the mail, how will people receive their pet medications or diabetes supplies without leaving home. A flood of cataract laden shut-ins will take to the streets in shuddering Lincolns and if you're out there on the road too comrade, then what?, then what?

News like this just passes right through me.

According to Worf, prune juice is a warrior's drink so I think the response was justified. You don't want a bunch of Klingon warriors storming the post office to get the prunes.

It sounds like Rudy Giuliani was making a gift basket for Fred Thompson.

Headline shouldabeen: OBVIOUS "Prunes force evacuation"

The substance turned out to be chopped prunes, said Sandy Springs police Lt. Steve Rose.

"I don't think it's flammable," he said.


Not before you eat them they aren't...

I think you guys are being a bit too harsh. When I was a kid those mall santas just about made me pee my pants.

Only one way to find out there Columbo.

Might as well install a seatbelt on your toilet after eating prunes.

Should have got the Asinine tag.

...Yulanda Burns, of the Postal Inspectors unit, said the items appeared to be "more of a message" than a physical threat.

Oh great! Now, we're going to see a bunch of these hoaxes and then the FBI is going to want to make prunes toys illegal in post offices. All of this because folks over react to the dumbest things.

At an IBM facility, I once watched a Wackenhut security person call in, examine, and just make a really big deal about a package. Where was it? By a mailbox.

Prune! (pa-da-dah!)
If it is a real prune Knows no cheese
(cheeky chanky, cheeky chanky)
And stands (Oh no!)
Taller or softer than any tree (or bush)
And I know The love I have for you
Will grow and grow And grow, I think
And so my love I offer you
A love that is strong A prune that is true

Nice movement subby.

Yeah well, you know how it goes.. You walk by a post office, mention that some of the brickwork looks palatable, and pretty soon your friends are egging you on, betting you you can't swallow the hole thing...
