A Beauty Item Is Mistaken For a Bomb

The next time you ship something at the post office, you might want to remember this story. A bomb squad was called into a Cambridge, MA, post office yesterday to inspect a suspicious package. As the Boston Globe reports:

"There was a suspicious package, kicking, making noise, vibrating — they got concerned," said Cambridge Police spokesman Frank Pasquerello. "We had to take the certain precautions."

Was it a bomb? A baby? A "personal massager"? Nope, just a battery-powered nose hair trimmer that had switched on during transit. Postal workers advise leaving the batteries out whenever shipping electronics, so the next time you send a nose hair trimmer to a loved one, you know what to do.

Boston is really good at making sure that suspicious packages/objects aren't bombs. When Aqua Teen Hunger Force was promoting for their movie around Boston, the mooninites that were placed around the city were thought to be suspicious too.
