Found it on CNN. This is pure ****ing genius...

SANTA FE, New Mexico (AP) -- Three CD players hidden under a cathedral's pews blared sexually explicit language in the middle of an Ash Wednesday Mass, leading a bomb squad to detonate two of the devices.

Authorities determined the music players were not dangerous and kept the third one to check it for clues, said police Capt. Gary Johnson.

The CD players, duct-taped to the bottoms of the pews, were set to turn on in the middle of noon Mass on Wednesday at the Roman Catholic Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

The recordings, made on store-bought blank discs, featured people using foul language and "pornographic messages," Johnson said. He would not elaborate because of the ongoing investigation.

Church staff members took the CD players to the basement and called police, who sent the bomb squad, Johnson said.

The bomb squad blew up two players outside and kept the third one to test for fingerprints or DNA and trace its components, he said.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, which marks a 40-day period of fasting and penitence before Easter.


But did they really have to blow up the freaking CD players? WTF...

Ahahah, blowing them up seems rather excessive. Terrorist worries are getting insane. As if a terrorist would go to the trouble of wiring up a bomb so that it'd swear in church before going off.

And lets be honest... why would they blow up some random church? That's just cruel, and wouldn't get across much of a message....

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Excessive. ****ing morons wasting good explosives on a CD player. Jeez.

Anyway, I dont know of any explosive that is powerful enough to kill people in such a small quantity that a CD player could hold along with a detonator. (I am assuming these were portable CD Players and not Radio/CD players which are somewhat larger).

Maybe it's my sense of humor, but exactly how is that amusing? I think it's rude, sick and idiotic behavior by stupid vandals with nothing better to do. What if indeed they had hidden bombs in those cd players? Not funny.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

That'll teach those CD players to curse in church.

What if they had anthrax? Or what if they had some sort of antena emitting some sort of mind-control signal? Or what if satan put them there to brain-wash the church?

OR what if it was just some kids looking for a good laugh at the expense of the church people?

hmmmmm... The possibilities are endless.... guess the terrorists won.

....Dude, it's a fucking CD player, a trick by some kids.

"What if there were bombs?"

For fuck's sake, lighten.

Hell, you could do ANYTHING, but it's a trick.

Damn, why has the world come to this? Practical jokes are all seen as terrorist attacks or severely wrong.

It wasn't 20 years ago that you could roll a house or put a stink bomb somewhere and you would be a fair warning or some kind of community service, now they put you in jail and shit.

Ridiculous as shit.

No, it's a disgrace that you're so uptight you can't laugh at it.

Yes, it most definitely is.

It would still be funny if the same thing happened in a class room, or at a business meeting, or in a supermarket.

Unless those CD players could hold 10 kg of any medium to high explosive I doubt they would of done much damage.

They would be too small to cause much damage. Not even semtex would do much damage. In the quantities a CD player can hold, only the people sitting under it and directly next to it would be very badly injured or killed.

If someone wanted to blow that church they would need significantly more than 10 kg of the explosive anyway (depending on the dimension of the church, the people in it, and the type of explosive used).

The oklahoma bomb was 250lb (or 250 kg I cant remember) but that didnt cause much devastation as would of been expected due to fact homemade bombs arent really that poweful....

Compare 250kg of TNT to 250 kg of a fertliser bomb and you will see a VERY big difference in the devastation caused.

Forget about the fucking bombs already. You completely missed the point.

The gesture alone is worthy of contempt. The fact that you find something like that funny proves that you are little more than idiots who find vandalism funny.

i used to be catholic, but I still find that funny. It would be like playing 50cent in the middle of a KKK rally, or the US nat. anthem during one of those riots where anti-american people go out into the streets and burn the flags and stab bush and stuff. :P

What makes it funny is that the church got infiltrated by stuff they can't stand. that's always funny no matter what the situation is. :P

It's not vandalism, it's just a childish prank.

Still funny though. I'd think it funny even if they hadn't blown up the CD players.

I don't see the relevance in the "admiration" comment, but I can say that I have a very open sense of humor and this is rather hilarious.

Ffs, Marius, you're such a grouch.

I don't see three cd players blasting obscenities as vandalism. It's a childish, silly prank. Morally contemptible, yeah... but it's pretty damn funny. Both the actual prank, and the fact that THEY ACTUALLY BLEW UP TWO CD PLAYERS.
