Very relieved, indeed
Do the bomb disposal guys wear diapers in those suits?
They look like the devil to get out and are probably hard to clean if anything goes of unexpectedly.
A "suspicious toilet" left outside a government building yesterday provoked a full-scale bomb alert in Towson, Maryland. A security guard spotted the white crapper dumped outside the Old Courthouse at around 8am, and called in the cops. According to the Towson Times, the porcelain loo was packed with "some type of electronic …
" "could be charged with crimes related to placing a lookalike explosive device in a public space"."
Since when did a bog look anything like an explosive device?
Generally, a toilet is used to counter explosive situations - unless there is dodgy plumbing in which case it can backfire.
Or was it when the 'device' was placed in situ and passersby were told 'I'd leave it a minute or two'
In the late 90s I used to go to one of the local universities' student clubs (which where, as a matter of fact, open to the public). they always had a costume contenst in October, and one year someone (one of the officers, in fact (who always had the best, weakest, and most wrong costumes) . One year one of them got an olive-green vest and taped a TI calculator and some road flairs to their chest, and declared "im a TERRORIST!!" It was a riot at the time, today it would probibly cause riots.
During renovations some years ago, a neighbor complained that we had a porcelain throne parked out by our porch. I'm grateful, in retrospect, that she didn't call the bomb squad.
The American Visionary Art Museum (known in the household as The Whacko Art Museum) is a fine establishment in Baltimore, and just the place to send a properly decorated toilet.
