US releases picture of mock bomb and yep, it’s plenty scary

US authorities have now released a photo (left) of the phony bomb (also mock IED) that 58-year-old Joseph Galaska was carrying to Chicago when he ran afoul of US customs at Pearson airport and landed in jail for carrying a mock bomb. Beside it, to the right, is a photo of a mock bomb alarm clock made in the US which has gotten travellers in trouble as well. Why not. They both look scary as can be.
