think it is highly irresponsible and politically incorrect for you to mention "carrot-raisin salad"

I think whoever came up with carrot-raisin salad is highly irresponsible. What were they smoking?

School spokesperson Amille Gambino told 11Alive News the device appeared to be some water bottle with fireworks attached to them.

You were saying? Don't let anything, like facts or actual news, get in the way of you getting worked up. Overimaginative security guards see anything and let's call in Homeland Security. Ban all fireworks!! Pass another law!! Put your complete and total trust in politicians!!

Hmmmmm... never heard of that one before....

When I was in school, we had some idiots drop little flashcrackers down the center of the dorm stairwell when everybody was coming back from a firedrill. Nobody got hurt, but it scared the pi$$ out of a lot of kids, not only because of the loud noise in the stairwell, but also because they had wrapped the flashrackers with those little packets of ketchup you get at Mickey-D's. Big Bang and Ketchup splattered everywhere... good grief, everybody's ears were ringing and they thought they were dying. It was a BAD practical joke, but nobody was caught. (NO, it wasn't ME... I was still outside when it happened.)

Anyway, a firecracker water-bomb in the dumpster sounds like just another bad college prank gone awry...

JMHO

Al-Queda can recruit on college campuses but the US military can't!

It's called progressive enlightenment (aka the socialist agenda).

Find it hard to believe they would considered this to be a bomb but then who knows -- sure did get people looking.

We had an actual person blow up and all kinds of explosives destroyed the next night from his apartment. Move on -- nothing here!

I have zero faith in anything the Government is telling me on the record here in Oklahoma after what I know "off the record" that has been sourced and verified.

This Lutheran/Methodist terror thing all started when some Lutheran crashed a Methodist potluck and brought carrot-raisin salad.
Death to the infidel Methodists! Anyone killing a Methodist will immediately enter Lutheran Paradise and be treated to 72 casseroles that never go empty. The casseroles will be served by Norwegian grandmothers who reek of the sacred lutefisk.

Sounds like Dry Ice bombs (More prank than dangerous)


Put a chunk of dry ice in a 2 litre plastic bottle, cap it, and after a while it "explodes" (bursts)

WSB radio reports the (2) devices as plastic bottles with compressed water detonated by firecrackers.

Just shows that the MSM's and their junior partners have decided that since they never bother to tell the truth anyway, there is no point to actually doing any kind of RESEARCH or INVESTIGATION before reporting.

WATER CANNOT BE COMPRESSED!!!!

What would an Alabama Jihad look like, though? Would we exit the safety of our officebuildings to find the Alabama Jihadis had attacked and left NASCAR logos stuck all over our vehicles?

High-powered delayed-detonation hydration devices.

OK, seriously: How did they find these things unexploded? Is this a sign that we are doing pretty good on bomb-detection, or were the devices not really hidden in dumpsters, but visible?

Sounds like a college prank, but if there is a mosque somewhere in the state and a pakistani student is found drinking water somewhere I'm sure we can come up with a terror connection.

AFTER the Knights of Columbus came in and spiked the punch.

Hahhaha! This is too funny : ) I remember a particularly horrid taco salad from a "Prime America" potluck. I wanted to spike their punch just to get the stuff down my throat.

The horror. I was past that stage by age 6. In seventh grade, launched the vice principle's car keys two hundred yards over the school pond with a three stage rocket...

1 recipe of cornbread
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cans (16 oz each) pinto beans (OPTIONAL)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
10 slices bacon, fried very crispy, and crumbled
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 cup each of chopped red bell pepper, green bell pepper, green onions and several chopped tomatoes

Make up the cornbread, cool. Stir together salad dressing mix, sour cream and mayonnaise until blended; set aside. Combine tomatoes, bell peppers and onions. Toss gently. Crumble 1/2 of the cornbread into a large bowl. Top with half each of beans, tomato mixture, cheese, bacon, corn and dressing mixture. Repeat layers. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours. When ready to serve, stir the whole mess together!

This is also great without ranch dressing package mix. Plus, you may add any veggies you want.

It can be put under pressure. I have picked up that the devices were chemical bombs in 2 liter soda bottles.

They make a lot of noise and are hell on mailboxes.

A few years ago, my m-in-law went through a kind of "housewife midlife crisis" and deviated from her "regular 7" menu. It was horrible. She's VERY GOOD at making those 7 dishes, but nothing else.

"AFTER the Knights of Columbus came in and spiked the punch."

WHILE the Freemasons delivered two washtubs of cracklin's and labled them 'Fried Chicken'. (We were watching the KofC, but not to worry. We are sworn to silence. Besides, the punch tasted pretty good! A few more cocktail onions and a bucket of those big olives would have been nice.)

We Presbyterians are waiting to see which side sets up the biggest coffee bar in the vestibule.

Then we throw our support to the other side.
