The Canberra Times is reporting that the all clear has been sounded and that the mysterious package contained only CDs.

Which begs the question as to which band’s CDs could have led to a mass evacuation…..

Which *poses* the question ~~

Back copies of AC/DC’s second album – TNT?

2.40pm and the hazmat truck has left the building.

Shame. Was enjoying watching all those firemen

If it was a white powder incident, you might see some hapless public servants standing in the blow-up shower, clothes and all. I’ve seen that a few times.

I only approve of blow-up showers, clothes and all, if both chicks are hot.

Great. Now we are going to get a totally pointless tax on anthrax.

PS Couldn’t have happened to nicer people. They’ll probably all just cycle home to their $800,000 homes in O’Connor and wait for their feed-in tariff cheques to roll in until this blows over.

“The Department of Climate Change and Efficiency has been evacuated.”

No doubt Monkton and Jones are waiting to see if Satan himself exits the building.

Now with comment from ACT Policing.

I believe it’s climate change these days. The ATO moved some time ago.

Looks like the ATO is our main suspect.

Holden Caulfield 2:09 pm 16 Mar 12

Yep, Climate Change on the right side of picture and someone else on the left side, can’t remember who. Customs maybe?

That doesn’t really narrow the number of suspects down, given how fanatical both sides of the climate debate can be…

Given it’s the ATO, doesn’t that mean there would be something like 22 million suspects?
