I watch a ton of tv, yet I woulda opened that puppy right up. Yep.

I did get to see the bomb disposal unit in action, as someone left a couple of nail and barbed wire pipe bombs for the business next door. They used the robots and everything! Quite cool if you discount the whole "why did someone smart enough to build bomb think that violence was the answer" part of the thing.

I can't believe you turned in my POTS!!!!

We'd obviously make the worst drug criminals ever. Totally curious to know what was inside...please let us know. That is if you're allowed to talk about it.....

That's totally freaky. I would have totally called if a 5 gallon bucket showed up on my front porch. I'd want the bomb guy from The Hurt Locker to show up though.


I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

First, I would like to say that since I read the post with the L&O theme, I've been playing it on repeat while I read the rest of this thread. :P

Secondly, I'm subbing, as I am joining in the masses who are curious as to just *what* was in the bucket.

Thirdly, I would like to take this opportunity to point out what a great game show this would make. "What's in the Bucket?" or some such.

I'm a little... off my game today. Please don't mind me. :P

i went with call the cops... if your facts are right (and i trust they are 100% dead on!) its a step FEDx is going to have to take anyway. its more then likly nothing, but i am a safe then sorry kind of person. plus, im not going to lie i would totally want to know whats in there! and the cops would prob tell you...

please keep us updated... i am a huge sucker for this kind of stuff.

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

Can you perform this and upload it to YouTube at your earliest convenience? Thanks in advance!

I think the officer must have had HIS pot mailed to you, so you would call them to come get it and he wouldn't have to wait all day outside your house for fedex to drop it off.

BRILLIANT!!!

(Eclipse- I can't remember if I've already told you this, but I love your six year old's name!).

I think I'm going to have to subscribe to this thread. I wanna know what's in the bucket.

Poor lolrus is looking for his bucket and you gave it to the police.

Too bad you don't have a service chicken- it would have opened the bucket for you, service chicken isn't scared.

Well WHEN the package was being delivered he was across the street from me busting someone for something.

They had three squad cars and they were searching the car. I wonder if they person being busted was who was supposed to pick it up?
