Package of Bacon Forces Evac at Lawmaker's Office

Excerpt: "One of Rep. John Boehner’s local offices was evacuated Monday afternoon after a suspicious package arrived in the mail ... Staffers received the letter ... After noticing it was leaking an oily substance, they called the Capitol police ... who advised them to evacuate ... After an X-ray analysis, investigators determined the package contained bacon ... Boehner voted twice last week for a $700 billion bailout ... A spokeswoman said it's ironic someone would send Boehner bacon because he has spent his career fighting pork barrel spending ... No injuries were reported ..."

Injuries? From bacon??? ;-)
