'Bomb' Found in Atlanta Agency Building

realEstateProsceniumAtlanta.jpg

In this post-9/11, knee-jerk world, it's probably best not to leave props that look like bombs laying around unoccupied floors of your building. Apparently, that's what one agency in Atlanta's Proscenium building at Peachtree and 14th did which, yesterday, caused the building to be briefly evacuated while a bomb squad was called to check it out. The package had in it eight red cylindrical objects, with the word "dynamite" on their sides, attached to a device that looked like a timer.

I wonder if it's WestWayne. They're on the 15th floor, and I don't think any other big agencies are in that building...

Is that agency known for creating "bombs" for their clients?

I heard it was Westwayne. Who else would it be?

I think MS&L is in that building also.

If it was an ACME bomb, I think the Coyote probably left it there...

iCrossing is in there too... but it smacks of MS&L if you ask me. They redesigned their front office for an Arby's pitch, so this sounds right up their alley.

if it were one of those bowling balls with a big wick would have been more believable.

actually, it was just jimmie "jj" walker's lunch. the actor-comedian of "good times" fame has fallen on hard times, forced to work as a custodian in high-rise buildings.

Maybe a creative job applicant sent it and it's just his self-promo/mini book.

The prop was found on the 22nd floor. It wasn't WestWayne.
