Downtown Chicago got a scare yesterday when authorities locked down a block on State Street due to a “suspicious package.” Except the “package” was a skateboard… except the “skateboard” was actually a can of ravioli on a set of 101As constructed by a 19-year-old student at DePaul University. However, with a wire sticking out of the top of it and the fact that this al dente contraption was left unattended on a busy street, you’d forgive the police for being duped by Chef Boy-am-I-stupid.
Now that’s a spicy meat-a-ball.
The student got a ticket for disorderly conduct and breach of peace, and will have to go to court in June. Hopefully this won’t leave a flatspot on his criminal record.
