"That is not a hair question."
"That is also not a hair question."
These guys are kind of funny.
It's 1969, you're on The Point of a patrol in Moc Hoa. You see a Yogi Bear Doll on the street. A familiar kid's toy. It's cute. Do you pick it up?
During the day you could not see the character. Even so, you see a circuit board, wire and batteries hanging from a bridge span and you wouldn't be concerned?
Then you are a dope.
"Oh, look that man wearing the towel around his head and an explosive belt has a smiley face button on his suicide tunic...He must be a nice fellow doing Gorilla marketing! Maybe he would like to come home for dinner and meet my virgin daughter!"
It's a baby bottle of formula!!!!
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.
"Umm, Gex-X has long since grown up."
Umm, yeah did you see these two?
Over reacting and caution is precisely what keeps this fools alive.
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.
Stoners who belong behind bars, IMO
It looks like what it is even in the daylight.
Man I would have tried to steal it.
"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?"
Hardly. These two morons were hired - probably for about $20 by a marketing firm to place these ads. They'll got back to smoking dope and playing hacky-sack if they don't go to jail.
Remember the dancing coke cans?
Gorilla marketing? Is the zoo coming to town? It's guerilla marketing. I think we need to pass a law banning anything that makes us a little uncomfortable. After all, it's all about your comfort isn't it?
Guerrilla Marketing has become a landmark book in 41 languages for one simple reason: it works like no other marketing: to maximize your profits and minimize your investment.GMarketing
Small and large businesses alike have applied the principles of Guerrilla Marketing because of their simplicity, common sense, and record of being proven in action. One of the main reasons that businesses fail is lack of marketing insight. Guerrilla Marketing provides that insight
With 14 million copies of Guerrilla Marketing books sold worldwide, and the many university MBA programs offering Guerrilla Marketing, this is now far beyond an opinion. Guerrilla Marketing is the best known marketing brand in history.
Oh my God!!! MBA programs in it?!? How dare they!!! Don't these MBA programs realize it's after 9/11....Let's pass a law against it!!
Not even a valid comparison.
Throw your straw man somewhere else.
I didn't pick stuff up when I was on patrol in Macedonia, Bosnia, Kuwait, or Afghanistan either.
But hey, if you want to continue your Moc Hoa flashbacks, and freak out whenever your agent orang acts up Eddie, don't let me stop ya.
Nothing a beating and haircut wouldn't fix.
Long ago.....an officer drop kicked a paper bag lying in the street outside Fraunce's Tavern in NYC.
Would you care to know about the horrific injuries he sustained when the bomb planted inside that innocent paper bag blew up and nearly killed him.
Go ahead and laugh.These worthless punks don't help elect *your* governor or *your* senators or *your* Congresscritter.
Why sure, I see those at the train station, under the bridge, right in downtown.....all the time.
