Quite Interesting: Oh the delicious irony.

Many thanks to Misfits’ Miscellany for pointing the QE at QI…a TV series from the UK. Started watching it tonight, and heard this little titbit originally printed in the UK’s Independent newspaper on 20 JANUARY 1993:

RECENTLY a suspicious-looking cardboard box was found outside a Territorial Army centre in Bristol, Police magazine reports. The TA called the police, who called an Army bomb disposal unit, which blew the box up – to find it full of leaflets on how to deal with suspicious-looking packages.

I wonder if that’s what the leaflet advised?

You have to love QI, one of my favourtie bits, the fact that Neil Armstrong’s mothers maiden name was Moon.
