Oddly sized burrito locks down school

This morning a concerned citizen of Clovis, New Mexico called authorities a student carry a suspicious item into the Junior High School.

The school was locked-down and two hours later, the suspicious item was identified as a 30-inch burrito wrapped inside tin foil and a white T-shirt. It was part of an extra credit project to create advertising for a restaurant specializing in oddly sized burritos.

When the police saw the burrito, they laughed. Apparently the burrito was wrapped in a T-shirt to keep it warm.

And now for the joke:
Is that a bazoooka in your pocket or did you buy an odd sized burrito?

Heheheee... I find it hilarius. School Mistakes Huge Burrito for a Weapon:

The burrito was part of Morrissey's extra-credit assignment to create commercial advertising for a product.

"We had to make up a product and it could have been anything. I made up a restaurant that specialized in oddly large burritos," Morrissey said.

Well hey, now there's an idea. I wonder if he'll get a good grade? He should - I bet none of the other students got their product ideas written up all over the national press. ;)

Spanish speaking papers s are probably having too much fun with the headlines for this story. The headline possibilities with that 30-inch burrito are endless. Guess what "burrito" is slang for. There ya go.

Tagline for Burrito-place: Our Burritos are so huge they are registered deadly weapons!

They did call the SWAT team. Talk about over-reacting.

Chipotle or Baja Fresh ought to feature this kid in their next ad campaign. (Both of them wrap their one-pound burrito bombs in foil)
But UncleFes at MonkeyFilter had to have the definitive comment: "Eating the burrito... creating a Weapon of Ass Destruction".
