We live in dangerous times

Same goes for Coffee Crisp: Two Seattle men say they were held for more than two hours at the Canadian border by U.S. border agents when they attempted to bring Kinder Eggs, a chocolate egg shell containing a toy, into the U.S. The pair were told the eggs are illegal because they pose a choking hazard.

Its elaborate plot to choke Americans foiled, al-Qaida announced it was ceasing production of chocolate eggs with toys inside.

That goes for the herb, too: Everett Community College trustees have voted to bar the use of cigarettes and chewing tobacco on campus, including outdoor areas that were formerly open to smokers.

Everett joins three other state community colleges with campus-wide smoking bans, which not only means more students may have to kick the habit but that community colleges will have to abandon their definition as "high schools with ash trays."

It's not just the sour cream on your baked potato that's a problem: Police in the Eastern Washington town of Quincy said an explosive device found in a bin of potatoes at a processing plant was likely an old "marker bomb" dropped during a long-ago practice bombing run and "harvested" with the potatoes.

Consider this a reminder to gently lay your bag of potatoes in the back of the car when shopping.
