Aqua Teen Hunger Force Mooninites...so not funny!
So what was it? A freaking publicity stunt for the upcoming TV show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. So not funny. I mean, yeah it's funny if you live in Seattle and can laugh about it while working from home, but if you're a working stiff in Boston and need to get to your job for a paycheck, or because you add value to our economy in the service industry, or even if you are a nurse, doctor, or other health care professional, it isn't funny at all. Shutting down a major highway in a large city for a publicity stunt is not amusing. Especially for those that were penalized for lost wages. Not a joke. Not at all.
Turner Broadcasting, the sponsor of this stupidity, later apologized, but you gotta wonder if they are going to pay all the lost wages, plus the cost of the first responders throughout the city, the cost to the MBTA for lost income due to the subway shutdown, etc. I highly doubt it. What a bunch of freaking morons their marketing department must be.
Of course, you can already buy the t-shirts.
I can't wait to see the Globe coverage tomorrow. That has got to be funny. I don't think that the stunt was at all amusing, but the city did overreact to the suspicious package thing. I think we're all just hoping to continue to live in fear. Mumbles called the packages a bomb several times.
Yes, the city overreacted to the lightbright devices found around the city. But on the other hand, what did the idjits at Turner Broadcasting expect? You put strange looking electrical packages under bridges and highways around the city and everyone is supposed to know that it's a joke? I don't think so. Stumble It! JBlog Me
