Yet another suspicious, bomb-like object closed Griffith Park this morning.
A maintenance worker found the object next to a traffic control signal near the main entrance to the park at Riverside Drive and Los Feliz. A massive response ensued, including LAPD bomb squad units.
The object that caused thousands of taxpayer dollars and man-hours to be dispatched to the park?
No - not a geocache this time. A golf ball with a nail through it. Uh huh. You read it right. A piece of plastic was attached on the other side.
Sounds like someone hammered a nail through a golf ball and used the plastic to hold the ball in place while they were hitting the nail.
Those things are dangerous as hell! Call the bomb squad!
