When Joel Hodgson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame was doing stand up in the 1980s, one of the props he uses was a fake bundle of TNT and a clock timer. Well on a trip to perform in New York City in 1983, Joel left this prop in his hotel room and wacky hi-jinks ensued. The bombs squad was called in and it got major coverage on the local news.
I wonder if Joel left it behind by mistake or was he taking a flight and thought he would never get on the plane with it?
