A bomb threat isn't really funny no matter when or where it happens, but some are more bizarre than others.
In Baltimore there is (as I type this) a man wearing a panda suit who is threatening to blow up the building which contains the studios of the local Fox-TV affiliate.
So obviously he's a fruitcake, and it's unlikely he really has a bomb, but still the cops have to play it straight. Here's hoping no one gets shot before it's all over.
UPDATE: Apparently the worst is over. He got shot and has been taken to a hospital. There was a "device" and it's being investigated by the bomb squad.
UPDATE: His "bomb" was candy bars with wiring and a random circuit board. The flash drive he was trying to proffer turned out to contain tinfoil-hat info about astronomy.
He was shot several times by the police but hasn't died and isn't expected to.
Latest info is on this Twitter account, for the moment. At this point I would say this guy goes into the "lone nutcase" folder.
