Mexican Jumping Beans Prompt Bomb Scare: Video
"A U.S. Postal worker delivering mail in Carlsbad reported a ticking package to authorities and it turned out to be something entirely unexpected, police said Sunday.
Several homes were evacuated and residents were warned to stay away as investigators blocked off the 3600 block of Glen Avenue around 3:20 p.m. Saturday to investigate the ticking package, Carlsbad police Lt. Greg Koran said."
The ticking package didn`t contain a bomb or a vibrator, but Mexican jumping beans.
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds, but a package of Mexican jumping beans can stop them dead in their tracks.
Several homes were evacuated while bomb experts investigated the ticking package, just another example of "overabundance of caution" tomfoolery.
The postal worker should be fired for being such a wimp!
