    How do you a defuse a nuclear bomb, that has been planted in the basement of an elementary school by a diabolical genius. Remember, he said NO COPS or he will detonate remotely, and it's on a timer, too.

    I figure this is the best forum for advice like this.

    There's a red wire, a green wire, another red wire, a red and green wire, a yellow wire, a plaid wire, a bare wire that is glowing a bit, a thingamabob, a doohickey, and some sort of thing that spins around and makes kind of a whirring noise.

    I have a pliers, a Swiss Army knife, about 1/2 a pound of blue Play-Doh, and seven Hostess Cupcakes with a sell by date of 3/12/82.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    You smother it by pooing on it.

    I was under the impression it was always the blue wire.

    Odds are the Cupcakes are still good.

    Use the Swiss Army knife to burrow a tunnel underground where you can come up underneath the bomb. Then eat the 7 rancid cupcakes. Fart and then wait for the gas to eat away at the microchip, thus diffusing the bomb.
  5. Do you have a cowboy hat? That's essential.

    Instruct the schoolchildren to form a protective shield around it while you get a taxi to the airport.

    Personally, I would diffuse it with a scrim. To defuse one, though, I'd cut the blue wire after making peace with my God.

    You need some duct tape.
  10. Run bare to ground, twist the red and green together and join them, the other red to the pre, cut off the others.

    I hope not! We have enough bombs already, we really don't need to be growing more...

    Remove the plutonium core with your Swiss army knife, then relax and wait for death as you munch on expired snack cakes.

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few


    or the one.

    In 20 years a FOIA request will find this thread in the NSA database.

    And yes, this is the best place for advice of this nature.

    +1 on remove the core. You will need a lead barrier to protect the children from the radiation. Fortunately, you are in a school, so scrape enough paint off of the wall to construct an enclosure for the core.
