In Louisiana ‘drop bombs in bathroom’ means poop

TMZ reports a New Orleans man was arrested at a Willie’s Chicken Shack after allegedly claiming he was going to “blow the bathroom up.”

Problem is … the guy claims he was talking about butt bombs — not actual explosives.

The man in the mug shot is 30-year-old Arthur Posey — who hit up the Canal Street restaurant at night on Nov. 13. 

Employees told police Posey made a violent threat against the place — allegedly saying, “Y’all about to close right now because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up.”

When cops tracked down Posey, he claimed it was a giant misunderstanding — explaining he told staffers he was going to “blow the bathroom up” … meaning, he was gonna poop his brains out. 

Cops didn’t buy what Posey was selling and arrested him. He’s now facing 2 counts of communicating false information of planned arson.

He’s due back in court later this month — where he’ll try to convince a judge the allegations are just a bunch of crap.

Sucks to be a regulator: European food safety office evacuated after explosives found

The European Food Safety Authority in Parma, Italy, received a package with explosive material on Tuesday which a local bomb squad destroyed, police said.

A worker in the authority’s mail room called police after discovering a suspicious, book-sized package addressed to an employee who no longer worked at the authority, a police spokeswoman said.

The package contained a small amount of a powdered explosive material that was enough to maim, she said.

Two floors of the building where the authority is housed were temporarily evacuated while the bomb was neutralised la Repubblica newspaper’s website said.

The problem may be at home — bomb at meat plant edition

Meatingplace reported a homemade bomb found in an employee locker at a Hormel plant in Fremont, Neb., was removed and diffused on Monday, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.

My Dr. Oz friend and public health sanitarian consultant, Roy Costa, wrote to say that most food facilities practice some type of security in their food operations, but it is most likely a well developed program when facilities are under third party audit criteria. The voluntary requirements for food security are standardized across the industry and include barrier protection to the premises (fencing) secured entries, documented visitor logs, identification badges for employees, and some type of visitor identification. Incoming goods and outgoing goods must be under protection from malicious contamination in secured areas. Training is required in food security for both management and employees.

Roy says that when near events like this occur, it becomes clear that the internal saboteur and not the external saboteur is usually the problem. Whether it be bombs, fires, poisonous substances, or pranks, the perpetrator is almost always an employee.
