Man Threatens to Blow Up WPIX-11 Over Two and a Half Men Reruns

You ever have one of those days when you briefly consider murdering another human being? Not that you would. But in a moment of weakness on a packed train or something, the thought, “If this guy doesn’t stop digging his elbow into my back and that woman doesn’t figure out that a three letter word for ‘good times’ is fun – fun dammit, you already have the ‘f’ – I will kill them both and the only thing I will regret is that I didn’t leave enough food for my dog this morning” can flash through your mind.

For a Bronx resident, that moment of rage, of briefly losing sanity, was inspired by WPIX-11 airing too many reruns of Two and a Half Men. According to The New York Post, yesterday a man called the station and said that he’d blow the building up if it kept showing the program.

Cops quickly arrived at his home and charged him with “falsely reporting an incident and aggravated harassment,” but FishbowlNY sympathizes with him.
