Sure, they should have known better then to put boxes with batteries around town in this day and age. But, I'm convinced their home made "Lite-Brite" contraptions were not meant to freak anyone out intentionally.

So given that, I thought the way they handled the arrogant drive-by-media was great. Hilarious in fact! With a few exceptions, I’ll usually take the side of anyone who pisses off the Drive-By. I’ll have to remember that “pick a random subject” trick if I ever find myself besieged by the Drive-by’s with a lawyer telling me to not talk about a case…:) Hopefully that’ll never happen though!

(To the tune of ’99 red balloons’)

You and I in our little workshop
Making LED lights from the money we got
Hanging glowies before dawn
Til one by one, they're all done
Three weeks later, MBTA subway
Worker sees one, he goes "Oh hey,
Better call the bomb squad by
Cause ninety-nine Mooninites have arrived"

Ninety-nine Mooninites
Hanging from the overpass
With their middle fingers high
As if to say "Hub, kiss my ass"
Here's Ignignokt, that one's Err
But Boston does not know for sure
The Aqua Teens are advertised
By ninety-nine Mooninites in the sky

Ninety-nine cops on the scene
Can't believe what they've just seen
There's batteries and wires, too
And no one knows just what to do
They look explosive, clench your fists
They must be from terrorists!
We better blast them to the sky
Cause ninety-nine Mooninites must die

Ninety-nine white vans arrive
All with TV crews inside
Everyone's a news reporter
Everyone's a Chet or Nat
Breathlessly they cause a panic
Are these bombs or just Satanic?
Suddenly the bloggers cry
"Wait a minute, those are Mooninites!"

Ninety-nine lulz we have had
And all because of Pete and Sean
It's all over, but Menino's mumbling
Words like "hoax" to hide his bumbling
Folks are selling souvenirs
To commemorate our Day of Fear
And here is a Mooninite
I check eBay and make my bid...

LOL I only wish :) Got it e-amiled from a friend, and I don't think he wrote it, either.

In the dueling pressers I can't decide who was funnier: Mumbles Menino or the Dead End Kids.

Bombs don't have lights. It is that easy.

That's a relief. I always get really nervous when I drive by one of these.

They won't be going to prison. In fact, they won't be convicted of any crime at all.

with wires protruding from them at a time of war-

Actually, they were in cases with no protruding wires as you can see in a youtube video showing them placeing the signs. Foxnews took the casing off - presumably to make it look more ominous and embelish their news story. No reasonable person would have thought that was a bomb. Indeed, in 8 or 9 other cities where they were placed, there was no hysteria.

And all you Arab-American parents out there, don't let your kids bring their Lite-Brite on the airplane or you may get thrown in an internment camp.

Unfortunately a lot of people here think it was all hysterically funny and the punks are really cool.

Of course it wasn't their relative who was at the hospital waiting to talk to the doctor about their biopsy and x-ray results; they weren't in the ER with chest pain when the bomb squad showed up; they weren't stuck in traffic for 3 hours.

No, they'd rather accuse all Bostonians of being stupid.

adgirl, the source was scrappleface, posted on powerline.

It was (another) joke!

No plans to paint Aqua Teen logos on airplanes and fly them close to buildings and so forth.

The advertising campaign itself? Not so funny. The insanely ridiculous overreaction by Boston officials after? Gut-ripping hysterical.

What do biopsy and x-ray results have to do with anything here?

He's 27? How did this guy get to here now from the 60s?

They obvious skipped the 1970's, hence all the wonder and questions about hairstyles from then.

The traffic snarl is a result of the authorities panicking. The advertising ploy did not stop traffic only the hysterical reaction 10 days after they were put up. Put the blame correctly on the police and Boston authorities who can't ID a lite bright. It was obvious when you looked at one of these and they did not have to panic the city or shut down the city.

LOL! In my defense, I have been part of some of those creative meetings where stuff like that--and stuff that is even more tasteless and wild has been proposed. I just thought this time it got through. I am so glad to hear it was a spoof.

Too funny. I am so glad. I would of course fall for it hook, line and sinker having been in on some of those creative meetings where stuff like this is proposed. The agency involved is known for always pushing the envelope, I am pleasantly surprised to find out it wasn't true!
