It’s so much fun to live in a world where stuff like this happens:
“Passers-by called police after finding a pool of a flabby red, orange, and green substance on the roadside,” a police spokesman in the eastern town of Halle told Reuters on Monday. Fears of toxic waste led to the closure of a wide area after the emergency call on Sunday, and experts wearing chemical warfare suits spent two hours examining the gelatinous substance before deciding that it was… Jell-O.
“The fire brigade always has to assume a worst-case scenario,” said a fire brigade spokesman. “We conducted a variety of tests and figured out it was Jell-O.”
Any time you hear someone say, “we conducted a variety of tests and figured out it was Jell-O” you know the terrorists have won.
