Adult Swim cartoon "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Mooninites flip Boston Off!
“The Return of The Light Bright Terrorist!”
Full of sound & fury, signifying nothing… except paranoia, fear & inanity: Besides the show isn’t that funny & it’s pretty stale & dull.
BOSTON, Massachusetts (CNN) — Authorities have arrested two men in connection with electronic light boards depicting a middle-finger-waving moon man that triggered repeated bomb scares around Boston on Wednesday and prompted the closure of bridges and a stretch of the Charles River.
• Packages were promotion for Adult Swim show "Aqua Teen Hunger Force"
• Devices included a light board that displayed a character on the show
The devices displayed a "Mooninite" — an outer-space delinquent who makes frequent appearances on the cartoon — greeting passersby with an upraised middle finger. But the discovery of nine of the light boards around Boston and its suburbs sent bomb squads scrambling throughout the day, snarling traffic and mass transit in one of the largest U.S. cities.
"It had a very sinister appearance," Coakley told reporters. "It had a battery behind it, and wires."
If it "had wires & a battery" then it must be the work of terrorists – Let’s throw away the Ipods & maybe burn a few books while we’re at it!
