School Mistakes Huge Burrito for a Weapon

HAHAHAHAHA. via AP and ABC News:

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.

Marshall Junior High principal was later quoted as saying, "Burritos are no laughing matter, even when giant." I'm glad at least someone is taking this seriously.
