Toy Pony Sparks Bomb Scare In Orlando

Toys 3

A toy pony caused a bomb scare Tuesday morning in Orange County, Florida. The bomb squad was called in to investigate the suspicious equine which was left in a playground near an elementary school. Realizing that no child would forget such a fine example of stuffed horse, a robot was sent in to investigate. This initiated a partial lockdown of the school, and evacuating homes in the area. After deciding that a full lockdown and evacuation might not be a big enough overreaction to an abandoned toy on a playground, they decided to play it safe and just blow it up. After a thorough investigation the pony was determined to be non-threatening. Check out the video footage of the pony being taken down a peg."

"Hasbro toy robot called Butterscotch that sells for about $350."

If my kid was given a $350 toy AND LEFT IT IN THE STREET they'd wish it was a bomb when they were done getting spanked.

NY gets a couple of internationally renowned skyscrapers blown off the face of the earth with airline jets... in Florida terrorists target suburban cul-de-sacs with ponies... ridiculous.
