SEATTLE -- An employee at downtown's Seattle Mystery Bookshop found herself at the center of a brief whodunit Wednesday morning when she arrived at work to find a portion of Cherry Street cordoned off with police tape.

Apparently, someone reported a suspicious package outside the bookshop around 7 a.m. and officers arrived to find a granola bar in an inflated package and a modem card attached by a phone cord. All three items were sitting on top of a piece of white paper.

According to the Seattle Police Department, the Arson/Bomb Squad was called in, and it took them about five minutes to determine the items were harmless.

Funky Granola

Back in the early 70's, there was a store in my neighborhood that sold H.K. Funk's 'Funky Granola'. These were granola bars that had all different thing in then, like raisins, marshmellows, and different kinds of fruits. As a kid, I used to save up my allowance, and buy them for myself. They were pretty good (real honey, oats, wheat meal, and lots of good stuff).
NOW, PEOPLE OF SEATTLE AND THE CONUS, GRANOLA IS CLASSIFIED AS A WMD, PRONE TO PRESSURE-COOKER-TYPE RESULTS!
SAVE ME, DHS, FROM THE GRANOLA BOMB!
Be on the lookout for pieces of WHITE PAPER, as well! Some kid might decide to use (OMG!) CHALK on them!GOD HELP the little waif that draws anyting resembling a (ONG!) GUN!
Naturally, our protectors will investigate, and assign those responsible to re-education camps (psyciatric facilities), with the usual doses of SSRI's and LITHIUM.
