"That is not a hair question."
"That is also not a hair question."
These guys are kind of funny.
MASTER SHAKE: "You can say that again..."
It was irreverent, but it was strange. Sounds like something I would say (although I don't know if I would have picked hair as a topic). But considering what these two had to go through because of some idiot that doesn't know what a lite-brite looks like (that had been up three weeks mind you in multiple cities), it's about as much reverence as the government officials deserved.
And if it HAD been a bomb, would you be calling the "public officials" morons for not doing anything?
In the post 9/11/2001 world that most of us live in, pranks like this are about as funny as yelling "Allah Akbar" in an airplane. Unless you are a 9/10 kinda person...
I love it when people won't dance to the tune of the media. It needs to happen more often.
ATHF needs to write the Boston cops and Governor what's-'is-name in as special guest buffoons for a few shows. These bozos just tripled the movie's box office.
Oh c'mon... quit seeing terrorist threats in everything. This was guerrilla marketing that was blown WAY out of proportion by the media, and especially Fox News.
I didn't find them funny...just stupid. The situation is stupid as well, they just added their own stupidity to the equation. They could have simply said they didn't intend any harm and they didn't think what they were doing would cause the reaction it did. Apologize for the end result and shut up. Guess that'd have been too rational.
LOL! A device..? You mean a neon handbill? Please.. Any idiot outside of Boston could have recognized it wasn't a bomb.
IF, IF, IF.
Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
Any Maroon could see that this WAS NO BOMB!
I will drop kick anyone who goes into hysterics when they see something like this and conclude it might be a bomb.
Then I'll incite bystanders to laugh them into so much shame the idiot seriously considers suicide.
Terrorist will use trucks and vehicles, or at the very least a backpack. When the terrorist strike here they are going to use nukes anyhow, and there is not going to be any neon.
You are absolutedly right, we know what a bomb looks like.
oh wait, not a pair of gym shoes
I don't approve of what they did or the way they did it (and it's a weak campaign to begin with) but now that they are the flavor of the day for the media I hope they have some fun.
You could hear the MSMers getting flustered and one of them resorted to the old "How do you feel?" standby.
In short, they are kids making adults look and act like kids.
oh wait a bottle of water
oh wait not a tape recorder
Unless you think that anything could be a bomb in which case you better stay home.
If I was either of those 2 I would be making sure I was stocked up with cartons of cigarettes and soap-on-rope.
a FLASHLIGHT!!! It's got the requisite four D cell batteries that strike fear into the hearts of Bostonians.
I will never feel safe walking down the street again.
In your world this neon sign was just that, a normal item, that even the the police should have recoignized as such.
