Mooninite Is Not a Bomb Banner
|Location:||The facade of building 10|
|Date:||CPW 2007, taken down before dawn|
Early Friday morning during MIT Campus Preview Weekend 2007, hackers dropped a banner off the front of Building 10 reading "This is a bomb [diagram of bomb]. This is not a bomb [diagram of Mooninite cartoon character]. Is your ego satisfied? Brought to you by the MIT Bomb Squad." The banner was in reference to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force bomb scare of Jan. 31, in which electronic sculptures with the Mooninite characters were found attached to structures around Boston and assumed to be bombs planted by terrorists. The resulting fear shut down parts of the city as the Boston Police bomb squads removed the devices.
