The Origami Bomb

This is almost like something from an episode of WKRP in Cincinnati:

BANGKOK, Thailand — A massive airdrop of paper birds intended to promote peace failed to halt violence in Thailand’s restive south, with a spate of new attacks Monday that targeted soldiers and local officials.

The bombings, shootings and arson attacks came hours after Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said Sunday’s airdrop of nearly 100 million Japanese-style origami cranes over the predominantly Muslim region had achieved an “enormous, positive psychological effect” toward peace.

Maybe they need to try again, but with live turkeys.
