"Suspicious Packages" Found Throughout Boston (UPDATED, BUMPED)
Michelle has the story.UPDATE: LGF reports that it was all a "hoax." UPDATE 2:Any of you who want to pile on the Boston authorities should have some even tougher questions for the folks in the rest of the country:
Turner Broadcasting is expected to issue an apology for causing today's series of bomb scares throughout Boston. A statement emailed to the Globe from Turner Broadcasting said: "The 'packages' in question are magnetic lights that pose no danger. They are part of an outdoor marketing campaign in 10 cities in support of Adult Swim's animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. 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. Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards. We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger."
National Geographic had a great show on Iraq today. Showing the progress andthe people who don't shake their fists at troops. Must have really pissed the cut and runners off. Not one Iraqi Academic, scientist or business man wanted America to leave before Iraq is stable. One former university head said "it doesn't matter why the Americans came. They did a good thing and continue to do so. The removal of Sadam HUSSEIN (spelled the same as Barrack HUSSEIN Jomama) was good and stopping the religious fanatics is good. Only a free country can compete in the international market. Why doesn't the left listen? Why? Because they cannot afford for us to win. If we win and stablize the region the left is history. If Bush goes down in history as a strong president who stuck with his convictions the Clintons, Kennedy, Pelosi, Sharpton, Barney Frank and other assholes will be out in the cold. These lefturds would rather us lose in Iraq than have our present leaders win. They would sacrifice our troops and this natioins future rather than lose an election. They are the enemy and should be treated as such. If America wins they lose. Just that simple. Don't have pity on them as they choose the path to take. They didn't make a mistake. They calculated their chances to enrich themselves. They choose personal gain over the future of our children. Piss on them.

"It's a hoax — and it's not funny," said Gov. Deval Patrick, who held a press conference Wednesday afternoon.Actually, it's a little funny. I actually laughed out loud when I saw the photo of Ur on the foxnews page.

Guerilla marketing for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
The big shock is that THE THINGS HAVE BEEN IN PLACE FOR OVER A WEEK.
and the cops didn't notice.

And no, this wasn't a hoax where they were "Flipping off the cops"
The "moonites" flip EVERYBODY off.Its what they do.
But really.Way to go Boston Police. "Glowing boxes on bridges" for over a week and they just realised it now.

While I'm not that keen on some aspects of popular culture, it seems that the cops should have a bit more "situational awareness."

Even the worst episode of ATHF is funnier than every show on CBS or ABC.

It is funny to watch characters do things they shouldn't do and suffer the concequences when the dialogue and situations are funny.<br>
Its funny. <br>
Finally, I blame the incompetence of the boston police / Boston Mediafor not being able to tell the diffrence between some batteries and LEDs, and a bomb. Their arrest of the college student-employee is scapegoating, and they will not be able to prove that Cartoon Network or the student-employeehad the requisite intent for the Disorderly Conduct charge let alone the "Planting of Hoax devices" charge.

I'm tempted to delete this site from my favorites and 127.0.0.1 the domain in my hosts file. Pullyour head out of your ass Rusty. Boston PD deserves no cudos for this. It would have only been funnier if NOPD had screwed it up this big.
