Dear Philadelphia Inquirer

Please read your own copy before writing the headline:
Cartoon Caper Shows Up Here, But Nobody's Laughing


"I knew exactly what it was, and it was not a bomb," said Mack, 23, a student at the Art Institute of Philadelphia who grabbed one of the light boxes off a building at Second and Poplar Streets two weeks ago and put it up for sale yesterday on eBay. "This whole thing is hilarious."
The Inquirer was one of many sources to label the Great Aqua Teen Hunger Force Ad Campaign of '07 a hoax. defines hoax as "something intended to deceive or defraud." These guys weren't trying to fool anybody into thinking their little boxes were bombs.

(Hey! This happened in Boston. How would the ruling powers react if some guys dressed up as Injuns and dumped tea in the harbor?)

Meanwhile, while we have municipal authorities shutting down a major American city because of some Lite Brites, and federal authorities trying to figure out how to say Gulf of Tonkin in Persian, WHERE'S BIN LADEN?

Stop The War.
