Cartoon Ads Cause Bomb Scare in Boston.

What's up with Boston? LED boards featuring Mooninite character for Adult Swim cartoon "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" had been placed for weeks in 10 other US cities, but caused a bomb scare only in Beantown.

The devices displayed one of the "Mooninites," outer-space delinquents who make frequent appearances on the cartoon, greeting passersby with a raised middle finger. Nine were reported around Boston on Wednesday, sending police bomb squads scrambling and snarling traffic and mass transit in one of the largest U.S. cities.

Boston police spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll called Wednesday's incidents "a colossal waste of money." She had no immediate comment on whether any laws were broken but said police would investigate further.

In this case I think it's a good idea to not that in some way, everyone who has an opinon on this event is right.

Boston officials did blow the situation out of proportion by not examning the first board and taking the steps to calm the public and remove the remaining signs.

At the same time, the boards are a bit small for any decent examination on it's structure and as Debbie said, someone could take it the wrong way

Personally, I think it's hilarious. But if you take a step back and put the other factors in, it's really not as funny as initially thought. But one thing's for certain: I'm getting one of those alien shirts. hehehe >:)

they are going for upwards of $4000 on ebay now....and my take is this-i don't care if it was a 50 year old or a 10 year old that called it in it is OBVIOUSLY a cartoon. i don't think the terrorists would put that much creativity into something that was designed to blow you to smithereens. seriously do ya'll think that the terrorists "pimp their ride" before they do a car bomb? prob'ly not.
