Figures... favorite cartoon is responsible for "wide-spread panic" throughout Boston.

The best part is the official statement from Turner:

The ''packages'' in question are magnetic lights that pose no danger. They are part of an outdoor marketing campaign in 10 cities in support of Adult Swim’s animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. They have been in place for two to three weeks in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards. We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger.

Uh... so if these were in 10 cities, why were we the only ones with police and state officials freaking out like this??

The local news showed footage of the bomb squad blowing up two of the "lightbrite" Mooninites. Poor little guy.
