Bastards!

Terrorists have sunk to a new low, packing explosives into a coffee-maker. A coffee-maker?? Gah! The bomb blast was outside the Italian Cultural Institute in Barcelona.

The police were warned of a suspicious-looking coffee-maker in the doorway of the Italian Institute in Barcelona

I'm willing to hazard a guess that *any* coffee-maker in the doorway would be suspect.

True. It's pretty clear by all accounts that this was a fringe group and they were definitely amateurs. Unfortunately, a police officer was killed while trying to diffuse the bomb.

Sarcasmo said...

That's terrible.

Cheryl said...

Agreed. I am really not enjoying this current round of idiots who think they can prove their point by blowing something/someone up.

Yup. Pretty much all they're proving is that they can blow something up. This one's almost dumb enough to be a high school prank.

But in a coffee maker?!? Too cruel. If you're going to blow up any food-making utensil surely it should be a deep-fryer or one of those ridiculously specific gadgets that only ever gets used once, like an apple-corer-and-slicer.

If I were going to blow up a gadget, it would definitely be the Veg-O-Matic.

I remember my mom having one of these when I was growing up and having some weird unfounded hatred for the thing.
