A Bomb is a Bomb, Except When It Is A Burrito

This was just too funny, so I had to post it. Sometimes after I eat Burrito's I Let out a couple "bombs", but this is ridiculous!

CLOVIS, N.M. -- That's no bomb -- it's a giant burrito.
Marshall Junior High in Clovis was locked down after someone spotted a kid carrying an object wrapped in foil.
Police put armed officers on rooftops and closed nearby streets. But the security alert was lifted a couple of hours later after officers identified the suspicious object as a 30-inch burrito, stuffed with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos. It was wrapped in foil and a white T-shirt.
When it was all over, Principal Diana Russell said she didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Eighth-grader Michael Morrissey created the giant burrito last week as part of an extra-credit marketing assignment. He says the kids are now calling him "burrito boy."
