GSD&M Gets Bomb Threat

Well, this is a bit more serious than an insult in the old comment thread. Today, a receptionist at GSD&M’s HQ in Austin reportedly received a bomb threat that forced staff to evacuate for 30 minutes while police investigated.

The police are still on the case to find out who was the idiot and/or prankster behind the call.
