From the Orlando Sentinel via BoingBoing:
A “suspicious” toy pony was blown up after it was found abandoned in the middle of a cul-de-sac near an Orange County elementary school this morning.
The FurReal pony, an expensive, life-like toy, was investigated as a possible explosive device after someone called Orange County deputies to report it. A robot inspected the toy before a pack of explosives was placed near the stuffed animal and detonated.
Sometimes the fact that we live in a confused and terrifying nightmare world that is spinning wildly out of control is hilarious.
