Something about this strikes me as funny. Was it an ad for a “big bust”?

So perhaps the spam text messages I get are related to “national security”?

There’s a show on TV called “1,000 Ways to Die” that features bizarre accidents/idiotic stunts that kill people. One segment showed two terrorists making a bomb with a cell phone as a timer. They set the detonation time for one hour ahead, forgetting their own time zone was different. As soon as the cell phone connected to the satellite, it went to the current time - one hour ahead.

Clean up on aisle 72 (where the virgins are).
