Is that a burrito or are you just happy to see me?

Just a case of mistaken identity.

From AP:
CLOVIS, N.M. Apr 29, 2005 — A call about a possible weapon at a middle school prompted police to put armed officers on rooftops, close nearby streets and lock down the school. All over a giant burrito.

Someone called authorities Thursday after seeing a boy carrying something long and wrapped into Marshall Junior High.

The drama ended two hours later when the suspicious item was identified as a 30-inch burrito filled with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos and wrapped inside tin foil and a white T-shirt.

More than 75 students were pulled from school that day. Some parents were reported to be calling for better security at the school.

Me, I say, give me a fork. It sounds yummy.

Unconfirmed rumors say the Chi-Chi's™ wants to make this kid the new spokesperson for a new marketing thrust - "Our burritos are the bomb" has been a suggested tag line.
