Evil Ads



The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Debacle

The City of Boston needs to STFU. Please. You have embarrassed yourself enough by making statements like these:
Assistant Attorney General John Grossman called the light boards "bomb-like" devices and said that if they had been explosive they could have damaged transportation infrastructure in the city.

”It’s clear the intent was to get attention by causing fear and unrest that there was a bomb in that location,” Assistant Attorney General John Grossman said at their arraignment.

Basically, if these were bombs then they could have done a lot of damage to the city's transportation infrastructure. You could reasonably make the same argument about homeless people. Except that it should be somewhat obvious that neither these ads or homeless people are bombs.

But wait! What if the terrorists decided to plant bombs in the city's infrastructure, disguise the bomb as a character from a lame unknown cartoon, and then leave the bomb without activating it? Well, I'd say that would be a pretty crappy plan.

Seriously, has any terrorist anywhere decorated a bomb like a Lite Brite toy? Is the Joker attacking Boston? Did the Riddler join Al Qaeda?

It's time to take a look at the people in charge of security in Boston and teach them the value of tax payer money. The people of Boston can't afford to be shut down every time a city worker sees a blinking light, or Pokemon, or keychain LEDs, or whatever it is that is giving them poopy pants. Call it a misunderstanding and just walk away. Walk slowly away.
