More fear-of-terrorism induced stupidity

The Philadelphia Phillies ballpark was evacuated and the bomb squad was called in to blow up 3 hot dogs.

Seriously.

“We saw something that looked delicious suspicious,” said Michael Stiles, Phillies senior vice president

The hot dogs were wrapped in duct tape, for the purpose of being shot into the crowd by the Phillies mascot. Now I ask you… how does the Phillies organization not recognize what I’m sure is a common game-day item?

It turned out to be nothing. We could have gone over and picked it up and thrown it in the trash and been done with it. But if we had been wrong, somebody might have lost an arm.

I’m sorry, but that’s the lamest argument in the history of lame arguments. If we take that to heart, we’ll be calling out the bomb squad to blow up everything.

Hey! There’s an upside-down popcorn tub! There could be a bomb under there! Call the police!

Janitors everywhere will be unemployed. Better to lay them off than risk them being blown up, y’know?

    I don’t even want to know why you duct tape your junk…
