Holy Blinky Devices of Terror!

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the February 20th, 2007

At a recent Dorkbot, we happened upon three suspected terrorists in San Francisco harboring dangerous blinky LED cartoon characters. These are the same Aqua Teen Hunger Force “infernal machines” that caused Boston authorities to so thoroughly freak out recently. Watch Out! These Mooninites might look cute, but when attached to things like signs or street polls they take on an extremely explosive quality. Irina gets the scoop from the suspected terrorists.
