Russian Bomb Squad Defuses Sex Toy

Idle 5

An anonymous reader writes "From the article: 'A postal worker in Petrozavodsk, a town in the republic of Karelia, noticed a ticking package and immediately called the police. On inspection a police officer decided that the package needed the close attention of the specialist bomb squad. The area was evacuated and the emergency response bomb squad quickly swooped on Petrozavodsk to deal with the ticking suspect package. The package was dealt with in all the controlled measures you would expect when nerves are jangling expecting a bomb to be detonated. Within seconds of a controlled response to the suspected bomb nerves quickly turned to laughter as the now defused package was seen to be just a vibrating sex toy that had been activated within its box.

Nine times out of ten, it's an electric razor. (1)

Lovely. I never quite thought this was true:
Narrator:
Was it ticking?
Airport Security Officer:
Actually throwers don't worry about ticking 'cause modern bombs don't tick.
Narrator:
Sorry, throwers?
Airport Security Officer:
Baggage handlers. But, when a suitcase vibrates, then the throwers gotta call the police.
Narrator:
My suitcase was vibrating?
Airport Security Officer:
Nine times out of ten it's an electric razor, but every once in a while...
Airport Security Officer:
[whispering] it's a dildo. Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article: a dildo, never your dildo.
Narrator:
I don't own...

If I was a terrorist I would use reverse psychology. I'd make a bomb in the shape of a huge dildo and have it vibrate constantly.

What is their message? What would Freud think? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#35515992)

Apparently their message is, If you masturbate then you shall surely die. Freud might think twice before he lit up hi next cigar. Maybe now the world is now ready for a vibrating cigar.

Analogue Clock? (1)
