It was funny. The media and local police helped spread the panic, and now they are browbeating a couple guys who did nothing wrong.

I would have asked, "So do you think your cell mate will use your hair for more leverage when he cornholes you without the benefits of chapstick during your first night in the Pokey?"

I can appreciate their sense of the ludicrous when it comes to the Lame-Stream Media, I just hope they aren't digging themselves into deeper doo-doo with this irreverence.

I watched it - they had it on the local affiliate. These two are a couple of morons. Generation X slackers, probably never worked an honest day in their life.

What they should have asked was if either of them had ever bathed.

Oh, yeah. Funny as Code Pink and Cindy Sheehan--no doubt their role models. Same kind of cr*p I saw with the 60s hippies.

The media demanded a press conference, and their lawyer advised them not to talk about "the events of yesterday"- so this was the result.

It is pretty funny.

Do you think that all the laughing Amnesia People, aka the 9/10 Still Clueless Club will be getting discounts to the way kewl cartoon movie? They've done so much of the publicity work, praising the "artists" mocking the state gov't and law enforcement officers. I think they should get a prize. THE BOOBY PRIZE FOR BEING SUCH MORONS.

Don't get me wrong. I love cartoons...they keep my 4 yr. old grandson entertained.

let me understand this, you attach a device on a bridge span, and other areas of high pedestrian traffic, with wires protruding from them at a time of war- I know this is not a war, mearly a situation, Caused by Bush-
and the Police and other Security agencies should not be concerned?
This idiots should be treated as the lunatic they are and Turner should be made to pay a hefty fine.

Seems to me they have brilliantly, with the help of Moron media and some police stupidity, turned a cheap marketing gimmick into national news and they did it unintentionally. They have their 15 minutes, I suspect these "slackers" will probably use it to make themselves worth much more money for their advertising ideas. You ticked off because you pissed away your 15?

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 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.

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.

"pranks like this are about as funny as yelling "Allah Akbar" in an airplane."

They had other stuff like that planned. Among the stunts were: young men in "suicide vests on trains and buses, white powder being sent to people in the media and jets with the cartoon logo flying close to buildings.

Am I the last person in advertising left who has any freakin common sense?

Only a moron would think that a terrorist is going to plant a bomb in something small that is meant to be conspicuos, and too high up to cause any casualties.

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.

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.

Gym shoes, backpacks, cars. Notice they all are normal items meant to NOT arouse suspicion.

Unless you think that anything could be a bomb in which case you better stay home.

Well I damn sure know what it takes to make one. After I destroy the first one with a high pressure water jet and find lights, batteries and a light board, but no explosive material, I assure you anyone with any training can - make that - should be able to tell you what this was not. Hours later they are still treating them like bombs. Over reacting, poorly trained, low IQ fools.

I'm right with you. I dislike how reporters act if once they get a microphone in front of you that you are obligated to explain yourself to them, not the courts, not the authorities, but them - the journalist elite. If you run off trying to hide your face that image is slathered all over the TV as if that shows your guilt or shame. I don't know yet what I think of these guys but I enjoy seeing the journalists get ticked...as if they are being personally insulted because these guys won't play ball.
