Damn You, Osama! Get Your Hands off My Beer!

Along with this now familiar general warning, the FBI has introduced the specter of a new terrorism threat: booby-trapped beer coolers. A lightly classified bulletin sent to 18,000 state and local agencies last week advised local authorities to look out for plastic-foam containers, inner tubes and other waterborne flotsam commonly seen around marinas that could be rigged to blow up on contact. Also, the bulletin warned, terrorists might attach bombs to buoys.

if Terrorists were half as imaginative as the aspiring novelists at the FBI, I'd be worried. Not for an attack, mind you, but that I might have some competition as America's next great undiscovered fabulist.

Thanks to Atrios for the link.
