McDonald’s Booming – Literally

Gods bless the third estate. Two teenagers in California blew up a toilet in a McDonald’s restaurant; while the authorities bandy around terms like “improvised explosive device”, details are – perhaps fortunately – lacking. Most accounts only describe a bomb made from “an aerosol can”, which could describe any number of strange and stupid possibilities.

The link above refers to the device as being an “AXE bomb”, from the main ingredient – AXE body spray. A few minutes with Google suggests that term generally means something else than what would seem to be the case here. Then again, there are other things one can make with the stuff… but would nobody notice the sparkler burning?

Any, you know, pointers to what this may be all about would be appreciated. Wink, wink…
