Ok, we are officially retarded now when something like this shuts down a major city.

Please terrorists, do us a favor, and cull our herd a bit......

2007-01-31 05:00:26 PM  
...and it sounds like they had already coordinated with local and federal authorities for permits or whatever they needed to put those packages there. This is just retarded.

This is the price we pay for half of America assuming the role of bedwedding babies who, when they can't explain something, attribute it to terrorism.

ekdikeo4: Funniest thing is that these packages had been there "two to three weeks".

Yeah, they're really on the ball there.
2007-01-31 05:01:39 PM  
"They have been in place for two to three weeks in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia.

Wow, we really suck at security. At least we have good cartoons.

I love how they keep referring to them as "devices" and that they're not "active". I also love the fact that we, as a country, are completely petrified of unmarked duffell bags to the point that their presense will shut down an entire city.

Oh, wait, I don't love that. It makes me wanna puke, actually.

Suspicious packages part of Turner Broadcasting marketing campaign
By Mac Daniel and Andrew Ryan, Globe Staff

Turner Broadcasting acknowledged late this afternoon that the suspicious packages that ignited fears of bombs across Boston today were magnetic lights that were part of an outdoor marketing campaign for an adult cartoon.

Turner was promoting Adult Swim's animated television show "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" in Boston and nine other cities, according to a statement e-mailed by Shirley Powell, a company spokeswoman.

"Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards," the state an e-mail statement said. "We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger."

not sure what law was broken, except maybe littering

All I want to say is that the opening lyrics end with:

" on my fingers and my toes and on my toys."


" on my fingers and my toes and I'm a Taurus."

That's so stupid and it makes me crazy everytime I hear it.

Incorrect lyrics are forbidden.

Whoever said there's no such thing as bad publicity has obviously never heard of extraordinary rendition to Gitmo.

We have your rims now, fat man. And now we are off on a quest, for honeys that are beyond fly.
2007-01-31 05:05:11 PM  
Anyone have a picture of these "devices"? I'd love to know what qualified them as dangerous
2007-01-31 05:05:15 PM  
Err, you shold stick with the patch.
