This is disgusting

Devices in Boston Area Linked to Marketing Campaign

Attack of the Mooninites

Time for class. Commentary later. This is absurd.

This is a good one too: Boston devices a cartoon publicity ploy

It made Slashdot, too. This commenter sums things up pretty well. I spent the day on or near campus and heard nothing of it all until I saw a “heads up, something’s going down” message on Emerson’s internal main page around 3:30. It was warning students to check for delays on the subway (which made it painfully obvious that the MBTA’s website is in serious need of more bandwidth for occaisions like this). But apparently the Red Line, which goes over the river, was only delayed by 15 or 20 minutes. Can’t comment on other transportation. Apparently the media have enjoyed making an event of it all afternoon, though.

I find this hilarious; I don’t know who needs beating with a clue-stick more. It seems that today in Boston so many people did so many stupid or paranoid things.

I love that cartoon.

Ugh, really? It’s been a while, but from the little I’ve seen, it seems about as crude as a cartoon can get. Lower than South Park.

It has its moments of funny, but it’s the sort of funny that requires your brain to be in a Zen state of not existing.

It is low. Not the lowest of the low. Believe it or not, there are cruder, dumber, more disgusting toons out there.
But they’re only 15 minute skits, so if you’re looking for a quick, mindless chuckle Aqua Teen Hunger Force is there for you.
