Hmm...this only adds to my theory that bubblewrap is the greatest material ever.
And I agree with you 3Horn.
Get on it. :)

When they catch the scumbag they need to stick a hose up his ass, inflate him until he explodes like a busted baloon.

And after we find the guy that's wrapped in bubble wrap, it is unfortuate that the 8th admendment prohibits us to lop off his sexual organs for his crime... I suppose we could ship him to a very war-torn nation (Iraq?) in the bubble-wrap... after we start fighting our war on terrorism of course :-)

Wow, just when Dave Barry had destroyed my faith in modern criminals, this guy gets creative. Oh well!

I think the fastest way to pop bubble wrap (without resorting to anything combustible) would be to put it in an airtight chamber and suck all the air out. When the air pressure inside the bubble is greater than the pressure outside the bubble, it begins to stretch, and, eventually, pop.

Not to burst his bubble (puns certainly run rampant here), but I don't have much respect for his escape device. Not much of a challenge. Now, packing peanuts... There's a novel approach!

Now, I'm gonna burst the ultimate bubble wrap bubble here folks. The NYPost got it wrong. I read the Oregonian today, (yes, I'm a Portlander) and both the TV and papers say it was shrink-wrap, not bubble wrap. Sorry bout that, guys, you were doing so well on the bubble-wrap tangent.

one time, a few of my friends found a big roll of bubble wrap. I mentioned a site tha was on fark a long time ago with bubble wrap clothes. No sooner did i say that then i was covered in bubble wrap. I thinkthe guys were molesting me, but i just couldnt feel it.

any how, it gets really hot in bubble wrap.

Kat,
Bubble wrap makes a great gag in the mouth.

In a related story, Osama bin Laden (or is it Usama? anyone? anyone? Bueller?) is reported to have escaped from Afghanistan by covering himself with thousands of styrofoam packing peanuts.

"We just thought it was a big fluffy Christmas bunny", said Sargeant Roger Hammstein, "though the salt-n-pepper beard did have us puzzled."

This latest move by the alleged terrorist mastermind has environmentalists up in arms. "Polystyrene shipping nodules, or 'packing peanuts', are definitely not biodegradable, and unless Mr. Bin Laden can guarantee that none of them fell of during his border crossing, I'm afraid we'll have to put him on our 'List of Shame'", said Peter Hugglestree, of Citizens for a Green War.

Allied forces in surrounding countries have been posting barriers of polyester and wool, in an effort to trap bin Laden. Attorney General John Ashcroft declared, "The minute he tries climbing over one of those, the static will render his packing peanut disguise useless, and then we'll have him!"

Experts from Mailboxes Etc. are said to be on their way to the Pentagon, but officials with the company had no comment.

Shemp Mo-Din: Bravo!

Shemp Mo-Din: You should sell that to The Schmews guys, they are in desperate need of decent sarcasm. And you my friend, look like the man for the job.

...and here Mom always said, "No one appreciates your smartass attitude."

Well, there, Mom - you were wrong about my face sticking that way, and you were wrong about this. Ha!

(you were, however, all too right about sticking my finger in there - it did get stuck!)
