this little guy is giving someone the finger
Widespread panic in Boston! I'm sure you all know the story by now.
1) After removing... um... say signage number 2 or 3 wouldn't it occur to the bomb squad that it wasn't a bomb?
2) Why would terrorists display their bombs in prominent places such as lampposts?
3) Is everyone crazy????
You might not agree with me on this one but this is yet another interesting piece of history... just like...dare I say... Orson Welles' broadcast of War of the Worlds. This is what happens when a group of people feed off each other’s feelings and fears. My mom said, "Well, they were irresponsible. They should have gotten permission to place the devices first." I told my mom that there's no way permission would have been given. Gorilla stuff, such as The Giant stickers all over the place, are against the rules. You can't go placing stuff on public property--thus the gorilla part.
I guess I won't do that gorilla-marketing ploy I had planned for my latest book... but then again, maybe I should. Our friend Jarrett did a little of that for his book Punk Farm--he distributed stickers and asked for people to place them around the city. I don't know whether it worked or not but it seems like a cool idea!
Some thoughts to chew on. And that, my dear readers, is the last post out of me. My thursday timeslot is over!
