I'm upset that they seem to show no remorse whatsoever.

Aren't they sad that we're a bunch of chickenshits?

Sad like when you watch your dog scrape his butt along the carpet?

Nothing like watching two idiots commit pre-trial suicide. Pre-trial suicide 101. Give a idiotic news conference where it shows that you aren't taking anything seriously. I think their lawyer should be fired for letting his clients look like such idiots. That news conference is only going to get people in Boston more pissed off at them...people who could be on their jury.

When really they should be pissed at themselves for being such over reacting idiots.

And those two are being charged with a disorderly conduct, I'm sure they are too worried about paying a fine. And being charged with a "hoax" is laughable. Because it "looked" sinister. It looked like a light-bright with a cartoon character on it. They are trying to find blame in their own fear-mongering ways. I'm sure the city will be litigious with their own stupidity, even though this was just some urban art.

"We were scared, you should feel bad about it!" Pah! No I really don't.

I'm sorry, but I'm so on the side of these guys and have trouble seeing any other perspective.

They were LED SIGNS! They were HIRED TO PLACE THEM! They're treating it like a joke because it's a big JOKE. The signs were up in 10 cities and 4 idiots in Boston decide that it's a terrorist threat.

Come on, a threat? LED signs? That are only vaguely flicking you off?

This country has gone to hell. Those two guys are giving the city of Boston EXACTLY what they deserve. And the fact that the media is taking it seriously pisses me off - they're being complete fearmongers.

I'm surprised it took this long for someone to give a joke news conference. Perfectly awesome.

I agree Michael. I find it a bit silly to think that it cost the city of Boston $750,000 (as the mayor has claimed) to figure out these little electronic Lite Brites were not bombs.

I think what is happening now is these two guys are milking this for some $$$$ and that is what the news conference was all about. It was a PR stunt. Bet you anything these two guys start making those things and sell a ton of them to people, write a book and show up on David Letterman.

Cheap in terms of marketing. Also, in terms of ATHF and the absurdity of these characters, with Homeland Insecurity and the media handling this event in the same spirit as the show it could have not gone any better. Slam dunk for these guys. Bravo...

Just to prove how wrong you are, here is a mere sample of the highbrow yet entertaining dialogue from ATHF, featuring Ignignokt and Err. See if you can still maintain your clearly untenable position after reading this...just try...

ignignokt: we are the mooninites and our culture is advanced beyond all that you can possibly comprehend with 100% of your brain

frylock: oh is that so and what is so advanced about it

ignignokt: well for 1 thing the moon has 1/3 less gravity than your earth i don't know if you can understand that but our vertical leap is beyond all measurement

frylock: so what your saying is your culture is more advanced because you can jump higher?

ignignokt: yes observe
(jumps)

ignignokt: its not working here err come in here help me explain our advanced ways hurry

err: did you mention the spelling?

ignignokt: yes we're excellent spellers challenge me

err: yes challenge us both

shake: frylock don't try to understand them they're beyond everything isn't that right ignignokt?

ignignokt: all that we say and do is right

frylock: looks like you got a real couple of winners there shake

ignignokt: you and your 3rd dimension

frylock: what about it?

ignignokt: it's cute we have 5

err: th-thousand

ignignokt: yes five thousand

err: don't question it

frylock: well i only see 2

ignignokt: well that sounds like a personal problem

meatwad: someone hit me up with a flame i'm having a nick fit

ignignokt: err light him up

frylock: meatwad!

err: here

ignignokt: encourage him in his habit

err: that's a good smoker

frylock: when did you start smoking?

meatwad: this morning now where's my whisky? i'm gonna get tore up

ignignokt: we shall acquire some wine on the way to the mall

err: and then you can get tore up

ignignokt: and pass out in the hot sun

meatwad: that's my boys

frylock: i don't think meatwad should be hanging around with these moon
people

shake: i don't think i need to be playing with these medium strings

shake: i need light strings if i'm gonna thrash

frylock: where'd you get that?

shake: from ignignokt and err they are the most generous people i've ever known


...OK, I think I've proven my point. Apologies will be accepted for the next 5 minutes.

Not a slam on the OP, but also, I really wish the media would drop the word "hoax" when describing this. These guys didn't hoax anyone. The devices were not intended to look like bombs. IT is only because the authorities in one town went haywire that anyone thought this was anythign other than light-up signs...that's not a hoax.
