Sometimes it’s easier than others to find goofy things to include here on the bi-weekly “Carnivals!” post. This was a particularly easy time:

Conn. police find pipe bomb stuffed inside chicken

SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) — Authorities in Connecticut are wondering who stuffed a raw roasting chicken with a pipe bomb and left it on a roadside.

Simsbury police Capt. Matthew Catania says a motorist noticed the chicken Monday morning. He says the bomb was large enough to harm a person if it went off.

The road was closed while the Hartford Police Department’s bomb squad came and blew up the chicken.

Nobody was injured. No arrests had been made Monday night.

Pointers to this fortnight’s blog carnivals:

The Carnival of Feminists appears to have quietly gone away, along with the Carnival of the Decline of Democracy (that, not so quietly; Ken warned us that he was stopping it).
