So are there any other details? Was it a hoax? Full of food? I can only assume this was a prank?

Who's going to pay for the resources utilized in this latest scare?

Time to ban pressure cookers. We just can't afford anymore pressure cooker false alarms.

How about the lost revenue and productivity of shutting down San Antonio Center. I'm guessing that is well into six figures if not more. Walmart alone was probably six figures lost. That's a lot of sales tax revenue and even more lost by all those Chinese manufacturers.

Better ban pressure cookers.


Wait, why did my false alarm at my business cost me $250? Isn't there some sort of federal subsidy to help me pay for false alarm costs?

Maybe I should start selling housewares....

My sources mentioned it was a homeless guy trying to cook a meal for himself and his Toon friend. Prior to Boston, this would have been a non-event, a non-story. Waste of resources, totally agree. If angry Muslims wanted to bankrupt this country even more so, they would team up with the Toon Patrol of Weasel henchman and plant pressure cookers and dry ice packages all over this country. At this very moment, police have swarmed Disneyland in search for and keep an eye out for the suspected Toon in ToonTown.

@skim1: After reading that, I am pretty sure even YOU don't know what you are trying to say.

@Ron. I do know and with some imagination and parody.
Fact: a homeless person was trying to cook some food.

Fact: pressure cookers were used in Boston by a crazy Muslim family to kill people. It costs Boston police over a billion dollars in resources.

Fact: unattended pressure cookers now look scary and fearful to everyone.

Fact: MVPD used their imagination to section off the entire mall fearing an entire army of explosive pressure cookers, costing the city tons of money. This would not have happened prior to Boston.

Fact: Please read the web link article. "As a precaution we have evacuated Toontown," police Sgt. Bob Dunn told The Times.

If I were the Sgt. how would I not be able to keep a straight face in my press release.

Fact: Some Muslims want to kill us and many of our young people march over to Afghanistan and Iraq to kill a lot of them at an escalating cost of over 4 trillion dollars. What's our deficit? 16 trillion.

I think I'm ok if I want to believe the dry ice bomb was planted by a rebellious toon in ToonTown. The question now remains, Who Framed Christian Barnes?
