A suspicious package found outside the home of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was not a bomb. Rather, it was a fan's way of sharing his idea for a "business opportunity" with Rush.
When he saw the package on his doorstep, the rotund rabble-rouser called the Palm Beach Sheriff's office bomb squad to investigate. Limbaugh had already scanned the package for wires with a device he owns.
The bomb squad responded, opened the package, and found not a bomb, but an electronic plaque commemorating the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. The package had been sent by a Limbaugh listener who wanted to use it as an icebreaker. Whoops. The man has since apologized.
Limbaugh has been in the news of late for comparing a woman promoting reproductive rights to a prostitute.
