Turner Broadcasting acknowledged late this afternoon that the suspicious packages that ignited fears of bombs across Boston today were magnetic lights that were part of an outdoor marketing campaign for an adult cartoon.

Turner was promoting Adult Swim'* animated television show "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" in Boston and nine other cities, according to a statement e-mailed by Shirley Powell, a company spokeswoman.

"Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards," the state an e-mail statement said. "We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger."

You have got be to kidding me lol. I can see why people were freaking out, but I think that the cartoon people or whoever they are that did this should have taken responsibilty right off the bat instead of freaking out thousands of people.

Hmmm one would be worth LOTS, but unfortunately I think they are all either dmagaed by Bostons Finest Bomb Squad or have been removed and returned to Turner Broadcasting.

Im sure that the city of Boston will pass along the bill to Turner as they should.

this whole thing was such garbage, since Boston made themselves look like idiots overreacting about these damn things that obviously werent bombs, now they have to go and press charges to save some face.
