‘Illegals’ Leave Terrorist Piss Jugs On D.C. Sidewalk, Everybody Freaks

Oh no, some sort of 9/11 is happening in downtown D.C. today: “Authorities have closed portions of two downtown Washington streets as they investigate the discovery of several containers carrying an unknown substance. D.C. fire department spokesman Alan Etter says the containers were found on a sidewalk midday Thursday at the corner of 15th and I streets. Hazmat crews are working to determine what is inside the containers and who put them there.” The “air around the containers tested negative,” so it’s probably just urine. As far as who put them there, well: “A Spanish-language bible appears to be resting on top one of the containers.” The Bush Administration is expected to bomb a random brown country by nightfall.

    Putin pissed on us because we’re Georgian too.

    What does Travis Childers say?

  • Botswana Meat Commission FC

    Meth starter ingredients.

  • Noodle Salad

    “7/NewsChannel 8 iWitness Sara Diaz sent photos of the investigation.”

    Diaz, eh? Sounds like she just booked herself a one-way to Gitmo. Say hello to Senor P

    PS – I’m sure they’ll find a way to delay the red line because of this.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Think what would have happened if it was a flaming bag of shit!

  • WhatTheHeck

    That’s the result of drinking too much Bud Lite.
    As for the spanish bible, it references the piss and vinegar found therein.

  • SayItWithWookies

    If it smells like Corona, it’s just pee.

  • Volumptuous

    I say we nuke all of DC, just to be safe.

  • Winsome

    I think it’s a protest against high gas prices AND Mexican immigrants.

  • dano

    Does Lou Dobbs know about this yet? He’s gonna have a coronary over these Mexican piss jugs.

  • dcgrrl

    I hope this is done by 5pm because that’s my Metro stop. I am so OVER hazmat scares.

  • HollowBrain

    It’s okay, it’s not like there’s going to be a sort of Spanish Inquisition.

  • PoliticalGraffiti

    well, if it’s a piss jug, we know no chicks were involved. it’s really hard to piss in a small hole standing up if you have a vag

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=59976]dcgrrl[/re]: somehow, this will affect the Blue line at Rosslyn because everything causes a delay on the Blue line at Rosslyn.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=59963]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: They would’ve said, “Sorry Senator Craig — carry on.”

  • trophy(forparticipation)wife

    Looks like an urea nitrate explosive to me.

  • Tawmn

    [re=59978]HollowBrain[/re]: awesome!

  • Gopherit v2.0

    Wow, you Beltway types are effete, aren’t ya? You know what we call finding 30 gallons of pee on the sidewalk in Tucson?

    Thursday.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Any truth to the rumor that McCain has come out in favor of air strikes on Washington DC to solve the urine bottle problem?

    We are all Hobos now.

  • defeatism

    Hasta la meados siempre.

    Lou Dobbs, is that sentence grammatically correct?

  • NotAnEvilLobbyist

    [re=59981]Doglessliberal[/re]: You know that it is inevitable that the blue line will be delayed at Rosslyn on the commute home because of the morning fires on the red line. Somehow, someway, it will happen.

    Speaking of this though, just saw on the local NBC site that the jugs were harmless and they reopened it. I work at 14th and K, so I spent much of the day watching this unfold rather than working.

  • Godot

    Good thing these jugs didn’t have any LEDs on them depicting a cartoon character or the National Guard would have been called in already.

  • dcgrrl

    [re=59981]Doglessliberal[/re]: Oh yeah, this is only today’s excuse for the delay on the Orange/Blue lines (which will spill over to the Red line no doubt). As a matter of fact, I think WMATA officials should be #1 Suspects in this case. They’re just looking for someone to blame.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=59989]Godot[/re]: That was one of the scariest moments in American history. I really did think the mooninites were finally attacking.

  • trophy(forparticipation)wife

    Have they determined yet that there isn’t anyone hiding in them?

  • WadISay

    If it tests positive for Gerber’s baby food, it’s a urine specimen from Chinese girls’ gymnastics team.

  • Studge

    Buck up, DC. You know the old saying: find pee in a jug, make lemonade! {smiley-face emoticon}

  • Wee Mousie

    I’m feel just a little sorry for the CSI investigator they called in to taste it.

  • cynbot

    Man, I knew the traffic in DC was bad, but couldn’t you at least keep your recycled coffee in the cupholder until you get to the office?

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    I take it back. I don’t wanna be your goddamn DC intern.

  • CrunchyKnee

    Damnit! I thought we were fighting jugs-o-piss over there so we don’t have to over here?

  • cynbot

    [re=59980]PoliticalGraffiti[/re]: I dunno … have you ever witnessed the engineering marvel that is the Stadium Gal?

  • DarkSynergy

    FIVE AND A HALF YEARS GODDAMMIT!

  • user-of-owls

    Well, I guess now we know what the DC answer is to “Donde esta el bano?”

  • rickmv

    Maybe the mexicans were just trying to bring some more of their culture over here to “enrich” us all. Since their culture is worth about as much as a jar of piss I don’t see what the surprise is.

  • In a Jar

    nice Gang of Four reference, Jim.

    [re=59985]Gopherit v2.0[/re], [re=59997]trophy(forparticipation)wife[/re], [re=59989]Godot[/re]: awesome!

  • BadNewsJack

    Boooyaahh Biotches!! See how my people fight. Surrender and hail us Mexican overlords.

    Shit, I gotta take a piss.

  • BadNewsJack

    [re=60031]rickmv[/re]: Thats not true. We’ve brought plenty of significant things over to this country. Lets see, we gave you guys California, Tacos, Burritos…….ummmm, Texas….. umm, Montezuma’s revenge…. ummmm, Oh yeah, Selma Hayek, ummm, George Lopez…….

  • CivicHoliday

    Donde estas la casa de Pepe?!? Ah skrew it, I’ll just take a piss and read my bible right here.

  • pondscum

    I can’t believe no one has said this yet:
    It’s good to be the king!

  • thefrontpage

    Coincidentally, the wires are reporting that the Vice President’s Office is reporting that five gallons of Dick Cheney’s urine samples were reported missing today, Thursday, August 14th, 2008.

  • Joey Ratz

    [re=59985]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: Aw, you beat me to it. Go Tuscon!

  • Oscar Folsom Cleveland

    Now that he’s back from his near-total collapse due to booze and blow in Pekin, Shrub is jettisoning all of his contraband….and who else to help him out but Juan’s Veep, Tom Ridge? Tommy Boy has his boyz distributing the white powder throughout the, ah, darker sections of D.C.

    Later, the police will be tipped off and the 34% of Washington’s black male population who aren’t already in jail or otherwise locked up in the “justice” system will be rounded up and blamed for this.

    Wait, FOX News is reporting the story now….

  • Lazy Media

    [re=59993]dcgrrl[/re]: Ha Ha, I ride the yellow line “home” and it’s never delayed (so far).

  • Lazy Media

    [re=60046]BadNewsJack[/re]: Bullshit. “George Lopez” is from Honduras, and of German ancestry. No, wait, that’s “Carlos Mencia.” George Lopez is American.

  • llyn

    I hope there’s gonna be a follow-up letting us know what was in the jugs. I’m betting HtwoO.

  • llyn

    [re=60031]rickmv[/re]: [re=60046]BadNewsJack[/re]: For Americans to be looking down on Mexican culture is rich!

  • Mongo

    The package I sent to Lou contained a dildo and a Spanish dictionary.
    No, this one is similar, but not the same one.
