You gotta be kidding me

Police arrested some idiot who was carrying a rice cooker in a backpack at the Boston Marathon on the anniversary of the bombing.

Authorities say a man taken into custody near the Boston Marathon finish line carrying a backpack containing a rice cooker is scheduled to appear in court.

The Suffolk district attorney’s office says the 25-year-old man from Wakefield is expected to be arraigned Wednesday in Boston Municipal Court. Officials have not identified him.

The man faces a charge of possession of a hoax device, but authorities say more charges may be added.

The man was stopped by an officer Tuesday, the anniversary of the bombings, after he was spotted walking down the middle of a street, barefoot and shrouded in black, in pouring rain.

Seriously? The guy’s 25 years old, not a teenaged idiot like the girl who stupidly tweeted a threat to American Airlines.

The “barefoot and shrouded in black” is weird… I wonder if maybe the guy isn’t all there, and it wasn’t just a stupid prank.
