Terrorism “Lite?”

A cricket and worm attack caused delay and confusion on the D train, Wednesday evening in New York.

Not as much disruption as a suicide bomber but the reaction reported by Danielle Furfaro and Melkorka Licea in Straphangers go berserk after woman tosses bugs in subway car was quite impressive.

From the post:


A group of teenagers pushed her, prompting her to freak out and toss the box of pests into the air, said witnesses. Straphangers then started screaming and crying, and all ran down to one end of the car.

“It was pandemonium,” said Chris Calabrese, 29, who was on the train with his girlfriend. “It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen on a train.”

Someone then pulled the emergency brake and the train skidded to a stop on the Manhattan Bridge.

The air conditioning shut off and the screaming passengers were all stuck inside the sweltering car with the woman, who then treated them to antics for half an hour as the crickets jumped on passengers. The worms just wriggled on the floor.

The story doesn’t say if DHS has been notified of this new attack vector.

You laugh.

What if instead of crickets and worms the woman had a suitcase full of “killer bees” or angry hornets?

Laughing now?
