A Florida bomb squad called to deal with a “suspicious package” found that it contained kittens.
The bomb squad quickly suited up and headed to the scene to defuse the situation. Once they arrived on scene, specialists found a box slightly stirring. There was no “tick-tock,” but a different familiar sound. Meow.
A quick examination by the experts determined the box’s contents was about to explode – with cute and cuddliness. Inside were two kittens, which the bomb squad manual states is more dangerous to a ball of yarn than to an office building.
I suspect that this is not in fact covered in the bomb squad manual, and that the writer of the above passage is merely having a jape or jest. It’s a good thing they didn’t follow actual bomb squad procedure and blow the box up, however.
