Church "attacked" on Ash Wednesday

This would be pretty funny in its own right:

Ash Wednesday Mass Interrupted by Porno Recordings
(Warning! Link goes to Fox News! May not be safe for intelligence!)

The Roman Catholic Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi was evacuated during noon Mass on Ash Wednesday when three CD players duct-taped to the bottom of pews began blaring sexually explicit language.

Mind you, I don’t condone this sort of prank. It’s stupid and immature. But the fact that the Church felt it had to evacuate because of pornography? That’s just great.

But this is the part that makes the story rise to the level of hilarious (emphasis mine):

Church staff personnel removed the CD players, took them to the basement and called police, who sent a bomb squad, Johnson said.

The bomb squad blew up two of the players on a grassy area near the church, then kept the third one for analysis after determining the players were not dangerous.
