Gargantuan Burrito Mistaken for Bomb

A false alarm caused the evacuation of a New Mexico middle school yesterday. Apparently a burrito was mistaken for some kind of weapon or bomb.

Thanks to Zach, Chris, and Adam for the tip.

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.

...After the lockdown was lifted but before the burrito was identified as the culprit, parents pulled 75 students out of school...the burrito was part of Morrissey's extra-credit assignment.

Whether the burrito contained sour cream is unclear at this time.
