Terrorist Pony Creates Mayhem Out Of Thin Air



Gosh, hats off to the creators of this brilliant pony-centric parody of how a mini media-tornado can suddenly strike anywhere. I love how the "shot off a TV set" camera gimmick makes it seem so convincingly like part of the "real" world.

Oh, wait, what's that? This story is real? It's not ingenious, deadpan satire?

OMG.

God forbid someone leaves a box of Qurans outside that school.

The best or worst part of this story is Barbara Hijek's About The Author graf from the newspaper link. Maybe it's just me, but I think it drips with sadness and regret in a chirpy, upbeat way.

"Hello, this is Mrs. Smith. My son Timmy left his stuffed pony on the playground. Have you found it?"
School employee: "Uhh that's a big 10-4 ma'am. We found the unit and it's been taken care of."
"Taken care of? Oh, good. Timmy misses his stuffed pony. When can I come get him?"
"Uhh, you can pick up his remains whenever you want. You might wanna bring a broom and dustpan."
"Huh?"
"Yeah, well, we had to have the bomb squad come and blow the pony up."
"Why?"
"'Cause you never know, ma'am, you just never know."

I went to a SIGGRAPH convention in Orlando for a week years ago with my lover, and after a few days found myself muttering, "Don't get off the boat, don't get off the boat," meaning "Don't leave the hotel pool, don't leave the hotel pool." It was terrifying out there.

Ahh, Florida. So many unforgettable treasures come from your shores.

For anyone who's read Hiaasen and thought, "That's so exaggerated!" Well . . . you're only sort of right.
