A bomb?

February 1st, 2007

Ignignokt from Aqua Teen Hunger ForceSome news just really pisses me off. I hate to say this, but how stupid is our country? or are we really this paranoid? What i’m talking about is the bomb scare yesterday (Jan 31, 2007) in Boston. Look at this picture .. Does this look like a bomb to you?

“Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said he’ll seek to punish those responsible, and indicated that the penalty could be two to five years in prison per count. . . [Homeland Security Department spokesman Russ Knocke said] Hoaxes are a tremendous burden on local law enforcement and counter-terrorism resources and there’s absolutely no place for them in a post-9/11 world” – freep.com

Aqua Teen Huger Force ChadYou’re logic is flawless, but i’m transmitting a better idea. I’m know i’m biased cause i see this picture and understand its a character (Ignignokt) from a cartoon show (Aqua Teen Hunger Force). But even if i didn’t, i still see it as character, and not a bomb. And how come out of the 10 cities that had these things, only boston freaked out? Seriously, If anything, it shows there we have a grey area that perhaps needs attention. I suggest a special unit of bomb experts in all major cities that should be first responders to stuff like this and assess if it is or is totally not a bomb (which all bomb experts would immediately do).

Bomb hoax? or funny, creative marketing? Read the Facts on wikipedia. Or see how they built it out of lightbright on youtube.

Props to stefbot for the heads up.
