The Crap Cannon

Posted by Matt Davis on Tue, Jul 22, 2008 at 2:28 PM

This month's Portland cop paper, the Rap Sheet, carries a syndicated Fox news piece about a new crowd control device, "rumored" to be used against "protesters" at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The cannon, reads the piece, blasts low frequency noise at protesters...

"Also called "Brown Note," it is believed to be an infrasound frequency that debilitates a person by making them defecate involuntarily.
I love a good hoax as much as the next person, but nowhere around the story does anybody seem to be acknowledging that this is, in fact, a joke. Republican humor is edgy, I guess. Still: Weapons of Ass Destruction! Etcetera...
