Terror Hair



These guys are my heroes. They're the ones who got arrested for putting LED signs up around Boston. People thought the lite-brite-like signs looked like bombs, so suddenly putting up signs becomes a "prank", and you can go to jail for it. The above video is a press conference in which their lawyer told them not to talk about the case. So instead, they talk about...well, watch it and see. It's hilarious because the media has no idea what to do. And they're heroes because they expose this whole situation as the ridiculous mess that it is.

As I said to Chris earlier...I wonder what would happen if someone called the Boston police and said "I think I found a bomb. Yeah, it's got lights on it and wires coming out of it. It's in the shape of two yellow arches. And the worst part is, it's right outside a crowded McDonalds."

I can't imagine that their attorney is thinking anything other than "Oh god I wish I was dead" as this is going on.

Oh totally! The GD Citigo sign is exactly that in the Fenway. And they won't take it down for historical reasons. OK, so leave it up for the terrorists to bomb or stick ATHF cartoons on it.

Those BPD are patriotric. They sooo get it!!

Sarah: I can have more than one hero, right? Trust me, you're up there in my hero list, close to MacGyver and Jack Bauer.

Yeah, these guys were really just a product of the retardedness of the Boston police, public, and media. It really demanded some retardation in return.

Did you ever see the video that floated around the Internet with the LED "throwies" set to the song "Heartbeat" by Jose something or other?

I can't believe I'm thinking this, but the BPD needs to sit on their asses and surf the web a little more. Grab a clue.
