dear boston bomb squad...

Aqua Teen Hunger Shirt...and tv media that is facilitating a culture of fear due to their own ignorance, stupidity, and cowardice,

I think you know where this letter is going.


Somebody get Stan from Southpark. "Really? [head cocks to side] Reeeally?! [head cocks a bit further] REEEEEEALLY?!?!" This can't really be fucking happening, can it? The media keeps referring to this whole situation as a "hoax." Implying it was a deliberate bomb hoax. That is exactly what they mean when they keep saying that.

I'm sorry but you'd think that people in communications and journalism would have a basic grade school grasp of the fucking English language. In order for it to be a bomb hoax, the devices would have had to look like bombs and have been placed with the intention to create a bomb scare. By this logic, if they'd put yellow Sealab 2021 submarine toys in lakes in Boston we'd have a Loch Ness Monster hoax in the news, or if they had flown a banner behind an airplane with Meatwad on it we'd have a UFO hoax in the news.

The truth of course is that the culture of fear as created by the post-911 media and government caused some idiot to call the bomb squad without stopping and considering the fact that maybe, just maybe, if somebody really wanted to blow up Boston they wouldn't do it with BRIGHT SHINING LED LIGHTS IN PLAIN VIEW. (Good point, Paul.) And then shame on the Boston bomb squad— just SHAME on them for not first of all recognising the ATHF character, and secondly for not diffusing the situation after realising the item that they got called out for had no danger of exploding what-so-ever.

Maybe people in Boston are just of below average intelligence. After all, the same advertising pieces were put up in several other cities without causing a scare.

I seriously hope that the defense's case involves declaring that this was an alien landing hoax of course, not a bomb hoax. I mean... Err is from the moon.

One Margaret Maloney put it better than me:

"If I see a scary looking tree out my bedroom window, think it’s a monster, and then discover upon closer inspection that it isn’t, it doesn’t mean the tree has perpetrated a hoax against me."

Where you at TCSU on 9/11? It was the open house day for SPSC (Tell-All Tuesday), and we had an alien theme. That morning Brad had gone out and done chalking all over campus with ominous messages like "Be afraid, at the St. Paul Student Center" and other nonsense... The whole building ended up being evacuated.

I've heard the stories... but I didn't start working for the unions until 2002.
