Pottymouthed CDs Nearly Destroy New Mexico



Congrats to the fun-lovin' but apparently foulmouthed pranksters who pulled off this stunt, and may you never be caught:

SANTA FE, New Mexico (AP) -- Three CD players hidden under a cathedral's pews blared sexually explicit language in the middle of an Ash Wednesday Mass, leading a bomb squad to detonate two of the devices.

Authorities determined the music players were not dangerous and kept the third one to check it for clues, said police Capt. Gary Johnson.

The CD players, duct-taped to the bottoms of the pews, were set to turn on in the middle of noon Mass on Wednesday at the Roman Catholic Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

The recordings, made on store-bought blank discs, featured people using foul language and "pornographic messages," Johnson said. He would not elaborate because of the ongoing investigation.

Church staff members took the CD players to the basement and called police, who sent the bomb squad, Johnson said.

The bomb squad blew up two players outside and kept the third one to test for fingerprints or DNA and trace its components, he said.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, which marks a 40-day period of fasting and penitence before Easter.

I think Cheney had one in his pants the day he told Sen. Lehey to go fuck himself.

My boss's hubby just wrote a little play about this: wanna hear it? Here it goes!

"What is it?"
"I don't know but it keeps beeping and it's got numbers on the screen!"
(Bomb squad arrives on scene)
BOOM!!!
"That was my pager, you idiots!"

Seems about right to me...

foul langauge? that's actaully kinda boring i think. i can get that from a cabbie anyday.

OK, I've figured it out. After 9/11 the gov. threw money and equipment at bomb squads all over the country. All those pyromaniacs are getting desperately bored with no actual terrorists to deal with. They blow up CD players, lite-brites, or just about anything.
"Hey, we got a call... it could have been a bomb..."

Yes indeed. If one is planting a bomb they would want to announce its presense with loud music. Makes total sense in this warped world.

Good thing this wouldn't be called a hate crime if a synagogue was targeted.

Coach said...

Listen Adolph Limbaugh, a synagogue probably not. Jews have a much better sense of humor then Catholics. As a catholic dating a jew, trust me on this.

but how about a mosque? you bet it would be called a hate crime. and rightfully so.

Heck, it was probably Jews who did it! Those rascally heretics!

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

I can't really control it. I think what may have happened is that I was going through previous months and editing the posts to include topic tags. When I did so, your reader may have interpreted these edited posts as "new". Now, however, I'm pretty much done with that, so it may stop.
