Paranoid? Americans?

Bomb scare in Boston

LOL americans, RIP common sense



Not an expert but is that how you retrieve a suspect IED?
 
they did a good job of getting some publicity at least. i cant believe they got charged for it tho. ha
 
They've dropped the charges. Turner Broadcasting offered to pay for the cost of the security operation and the prosecutors basically knew that they'd have little chance of making the charges stick in court.

On balance, when you look at how much publicity has been gained from this, I'd say turner came away a winner.

(Edited to add: I saw the two guerilla marketing guys responsible on TV. What a pair of tw@ts.)

It should be LOL Bostonians. A city of Irish and Italians run by a jackass (Mayor Menino)!

The ad campaign was done in 9 cities, of which only one thought the cartoon was a possible bomb scare--Boston.

The NY papers are having a field day heaping scorn and ridicule on them.

I hope they have dropped the charges for Berdovsky's sake; The Register, ouch.
