When is a "suspicious package" not a suspicious package? When it has "suspicious package" written all over it.
Some prankster/artist playing on the recent spate of bogus bomb threats found around New York left a white bag with the words "suspisious package" and a bunch of question marks printed on it sitting on top of an electrical box on the corner of Prince and Broadway today.
Signed "Samuel Mark", the misspelled package failed to elicit even the faintest notice from passing tourists and New Yorkers.
Considering the legitimate jumpiness of New Yorkers in the wake of Faisal Shahzad's failed car bomb attempt, let's hope this isn't the beginning of trend.
