Be Afraid of Everything Including Toys Like the Lite Brite!

  I'm going to just shut up and stop going from infuriated to highly amused and just see if I'm the only one thinking the same thing about this:

The Dudes' response, at the press conference after their arrest.

Wil Wheaton's summary of the event:
1. [adult swim] has a clever viral marketing program.
2. People begin to notice the clever viral marketing program.
3. Someone wets their pants, because LEDs in an odd shape clearly mean we're all about to die.
4. Police City Officials overreact. (Corrected. Bostonians say police acted appropriately.)
5. Media overreacts.
6. Entire city of Boston is fucked for an entire day.
7. Entire city of Boston is (understandably) pissed.
8. Media, which overreacted and labeled the viral marketing campaign a terrorist hoax, decides that [adult swim] and Turner somehow owe people of Boston an apology, and also owe city all the costs the city incurred as a result of Media-induced hysteria. There's a rather angry editorial at boston.com which really lays into Turner for perpetuating a "terrorist hoax" on an innocent city. The only problem with that is that it wasn't a fucking terrorist hoax! It was a viral marketing campaign that went awry when a bunch of people over-reacted.

I agree with Wil (though I will always agree the dreamy Weasley Crusher).

Note: The cartoon character was a Mooninite from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
I don't afraid like this. I wasn't afraid like this in Israel. Why do I need to afraid like this here?
