I love these guys!
Just when you thought there was nothing funny about the Global War on Terror, these guys come along.
You've heard the basic story, right? Around Boston they find these panels with blinking lights, they immediately determine they must be bombs, they spend almost a million bucks to disarm the threat, and then they catch and arrest the miscreants who planted these destructive devices.
It turns out they weren't bombs, though, they were promotions for a cartoon on TV, so rather than look stupid, they charge these two guys with intentionally causing panic. (Did you know that was a crime? Me neither, and I'm a lawyer.) Apparently they're all over the place, and nobody anywhere but Boston even looked twice at these things.
The judge clearly isn't buying it, and it does sound as though he's looking askance at the prosecutors.
The two guys seem to be living it up, and they get a link to their web page just for that. (Actually, when I just tried to go there it hung up, probably because it's too busy, but it's worth a shot.
So they get out of court, the press are all there, and their lawyer tells them what any smart lawyer would tell them: Don't talk to the press. They say, no way, we're going to talk to the press, but we'll only answer questions about 1970's hair styles.
You have to love it! "Sure, we're idiots, but what does that make you?"
