Middletown Makes National News via Fark!

Today Middletown made headlines on the  popular offbeat news website which syndicates  weird news headlines from around the country.  
A  person called in an unsual box at the corner of Church and Broad Streets today prompting the bomb squad to be called. .Better safe than sorry we say. Fark picked up the story and  had a little fun with the headline. isn't a Weblog. According to its "about page",, the Web site, is a news aggregator and an edited social networking news site. Fark states it  receives 2,000 news submissions from its readers, from which the editors' choose the funny and weird notable news -- and not-news -- of the day.
Fark writers then preface the headline with a satirical antidote, in this case:
"Bomb squad called to investigate suspicious device that no one had seen before - a sewing machine
The Insider isn't the only source that chooses to look for brevity in local politics, Fark has been doing it for years. The last time a news story made Fark that was somewhat related to Middletown was for the post : "In a move to promote public $afety, CT passes legislation to allow driver's licenses for illegals. I guess we will find out if registration does in fact lead to confiscation."
From our research, Middletown it self has not made the front page of Fark before today, while the city has received attention another popular reader generated news website in the past. Kinda cool.
