Marketing Campaign For Aqua Teen Hunger Force Summons Bomb Sqaud


The discovery of a series of suspicious objects on bridges, near a medical center, underneath an interstate, and in other crowded public places have set off a wave of bomb scares across Boston, snarling traffic and subways across the city.

None of the suspicious objects have been determined to be actual bombs. It was not immediately clear if the incidents were connected or part of some elaborate hoax.

The objects were part of a guerrilla marketing campaign for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which is a good show. The bomb squad actually went so far as to detonate one of the objects.

At least we now know that the Boston bomb squad doesn’t watch Cartoon Network. And knowing is half the battle. The half that doesn’t involve explosives. —MEGHANN MARCO
