News – “Man Arrested for Threatening to ‘Blow Up Restaurant’ Says He Just Wanted to Take a Dump”

munchies.vice.comLook, we appreciate a good poop joke as much as the next 13-year-old, but if your alleged attempt at bathroom humor ends with a mugshot, an arrest warrant, and a pair of serious-sounding charges, you might be doing it wrong.

According to the Times-Picayune, 30-year-old Arthur Posey walked into a Willie’s Chicken Shack in New Orleans at about 7 PM Tuesday night. According to Posey, he commented to a female manager that he was going to “blow the bathroom up” and—again, according to him—what he meant was that he was going to take a massive shit. (Arthur, regardless of how this all shakes out, you need to work on your game.)

But according to the manager, Posey strolled into the restaurant, walked toward the food-prep area, and asked her how late the restaurant stayed open. She told him she didn’t know (side note: YOU’RE THE MANAGER, why don’t you know this???), and he told her “Y’all about to close right now, because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up.” She reported the incident to the Chicken Shack’s general manager, who advised her to call the police.

Posey had left the restaurant by the time the officers arrived, but they spotted him walking into a different business on the next block. He told the cops that he didn’t have a bomb, and just meant that he was about to “blow the bathroom up” with a swift, unyielding bowel movement.


See now this one hits a little close to home, because there’s been MANY a time I’ve said out loud in a public forum,”Yo my guts are having a rumble in the jungle right now….I’m about to blow the bathroom up, i’ll be right back.”

But it looks like their saying he specifically said a bomb, so this whole thing is a tad confusing….but if you’re going to blow the bathroom up you might want to specify when you say it out loud to someone who you mean you’re about to take a massive dump and not literally blow the place up.
