Two plead not guilty to Boston hoax charges.

Basically people saw funny lights depicting little cartoon moon-men in some odd places and thought "A bomb! A bomb! Eeek! A bomb!". *shakes head sadly* I guess we get to make fun of people from Boston now for being afraid of Lite Brites.

You can make fun of Boston and its inhabitants for anything at anytime.

It was a while ago, after OKC but before 9/11. Some guy had a bumper sticker on his truck extolling the virtues of somethingorother, saying "Somethingorother is da bomb!". He parked too close to the Federal Building one day and there was much hooplah.


I can't remember if this was at all related to the guy who was placing "hoax devices" of a sort: bowling balls with a piece of rope stuck in a fingerhole, to look like cartoon bombs.
