Holy burrito batman!


Recommended Posts

CLOVIS, N.M. - A call about a possible weapon at a middle school prompted police to put armed officers on rooftops, close nearby streets and lock down the school. All over a giant burrito.

 

Someone called authorities Thursday after seeing a boy carrying something long and wrapped into Marshall Junior High.

 

The drama ended two hours later when the suspicious item was identified as a 30-inch burrito filled with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos and wrapped inside tin foil and a white T-shirt.

 

"I didn't know whether to laugh or cry," school Principal Diana Russell said.

 

State police, Clovis police and the Curry County Sheriff's Department arrived at the school shortly after 8:30 a.m. They searched the premises and determined there was no immediate danger.

 

In the meantime, more than 30 parents, alerted by a radio report, descended on the school. Visibly shaken, they gathered around in a semi-circle, straining their necks, awaiting news.

 

"There needs to be security before the kids walk through the door," said Heather Black, whose son attends the school.

 

After the lockdown was lifted but before the burrito was identified as the culprit, parents pulled 75 students out of school, Russell said.

 

Russell said the mystery was solved after she brought everyone in the school together in the auditorium to explain what was going on.

 

"The kid was sitting there as I'm describing this (report of a student with a suspicious package) and he's thinking, 'Oh, my gosh, they're talking about my burrito.'"

 

Afterward, eighth-grader Michael Morrissey approached her.

 

"He said, 'I think I'm the person they saw,'" Russell said.

 

The burrito was part of Morrissey's extra-credit assignment to create commercial advertising for a product.

 

"We had to make up a product and it could have been anything. I made up a restaurant that specialized in oddly large burritos," Morrissey said.

 

After students heard the description of what police were looking for, he and his friends began to make the connection. He then took the burrito to the office.

 

"The police saw it and everyone just started laughing. It was a laughter of relief," Morrissey said.

 

"Oh, and I have a new nickname now. It's Burrito Boy."

Case in point.

Yer busted.

 

I just feel so fuzzy wuzzy living in a inky dinky world of safety and knowing my luvvy wuvvy gummint is working hard to spend my money fanning paranoia and scaring the bejeezus outta the sheeple.

 

Whatever you wonderful folks in DC have left over, please do use it to pass more laws and make more regulations and create more agencies. I really want you to create more agencies, and oversight committees, and focus groups, and investigative panels, and deliberative bodies, and watchdog orgs, and quorums, and select groups, and closed door sessions, and legal experts, and safety administrations, and supermajorities, and dioces, and "invited groups of informed citizens". Oh yeah, I want more laws being drafted based on the concerns of "invited groups of informed citizens".

 

Now the WWW has become a WalMart instead of a conduit for free thought and exchange of ideas.

 

Fear. It's what's for dinner.

Not sure which one to use here:

 

 

1) "When burritos are outlawed, only outlaws will have burritos."

 

or...

 

2) "Is that a burrito in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"

 

 

I can't make up my mind.....

I saw the video of the kid getting cuffed-what shoulda happened to the brat is she shoulda got her fuckin ass kicked and put in a room, but NOOO!!! can;t do that-parents will sue. I can;'t believe how much power kids have now that they can be disruptive and hit teachers and run amok, but we are powerless to do anything? I don't think so. If my kids behaved like that, I woulda shoed them so hard they wouldn't sit for a week. Parents do not discipline their kids anymore, and if they do-big brother comes and takes them away!

Crazy, crazy world. :1106:

I firmly agree.....

 

I do not condone child abuse....however...

 

Disciplining a child should be called..."Directional Therapy"

 

A few good cracks on the backside will motivate them in the right direction in the future.....rather than having them put someone in the hospital or grave because no one has ever done anything to correct them in the past....

 

Just my thoughts...just my opinions...
