#1 Some years ago I knew a wit who made himself a little device, just a small metal box, with a radio antenna. On the front of the box was an on/off switch that would turn on a red light, and a push button that did nothing.

He would take it from his pocket, extend the antenna, turn on the red light, then push the button. He thought it was a hoot. Got some interesting reactions out of people.

Until one time when he did that at a coffee shop, unaware that a police officer was watching him.

#5 Ready, Mohammad? OK, you put your foot in my crotch, like so....

All these guys are named Mohammad? The security spokesman, the 'detonator', the 'exploder', probably the pilot....
