I love this, though:
"Scaring an entire region, tying up the T and major roadways, and forcing first responders to spend 12 hours chasing down trinkets instead of terrorists is marketing run amok"
OMGTERRORISTS. Didn't they find it extremely obvious after giving the first light a cursory examination, that it was NOT a BOMB?
I bet the Adult Swim crew is laughing its collective arse off at this debacle. Hope no one gets fired over it, though, or that Turner does anything hasty. Adult Swim's advertising has always been beyond cool, wouldn't want something like this to fuck things up for them.
