School Ad Project Causes Columbine-Like Lock Down
A thirty inch burrito, created by Clovis New Mexico eight grade student Michael Morrissey as part of an extra-credit assignment to create advertising for a product, was mistook by someone for a weapon causing a school lock down complete with street closings, armed police on building rooftops and freaked out parents. It wasn't until two hours after the pandemonium began when Marshall Junior High Principal Diana Russell gathered students and parents in the school auditorium to explain the mishap that everyone could laugh at the insanity of the whole event.
"The police saw it and everyone just started laughing. It was a laughter of relief," Morrissey said. "Oh, and I have a new nickname now. It's Burrito Boy."
