Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson says a man discovered a Thermos-type container in his lawn Thursday afternoon and brought it to a police briefing station.

With a burrito their options are limited, a hot dog they’d have just shot...

Burritos only explode AFTER you eat them. I thought this was common knowledge?

I suppose Oklahoma City police would never, ever be able to laugh at a potential bomb, given their history.

The burrito didn’t cause anything. Last time I saw a burrito it couldn’t do anything. Maybe they meant to say that a person’s inordinate fear and anxiety fueled by media excess caused him to suspect something bad and take the burrito to the police.

If the real terrorists want to bring this country to its knees, all they have to do is plant a thousand burritos wrapped in foil in stragetic places throughout the country. Or put cell phone chargers in backpacks. Or drop some flour on the ground.

If the country really wanted to rid itself of terrorism, the answer is easy. Very easy. Stop ALL immigration from bearded savage countries, and send home the ones who are already here. Leave the burritos alone.

A shaken police officer was put on administrative duty pending the outcome of the shooting investigation of a sidewalk hotdog vendor. The vendor, a long time fixture, had been providing fast food for police officers for many years.

Police union reps said the officer fired 78 times hitting the proffered hot dog twice. Police are not sure of the total number of pedestrians injured in the shoot out.

"I was afraid for my life. Suddenly the hot dog lunged towards me, going straight for my face. All I could hear was. 'Get your red hot'."
