    Melburnians fall victim to comedy show hoax
    The name of the comedy group was "Comicide". They do a live sketch show.

    It's almost as bad as the ATHF incident in Boston.

    Oh please, people calling a light bright a bomb. That was a prank just a mush as people putting skateboard stickers on signs and such.

    No wonder they ban violent movies and games in Australia... people might actually take them to heart.

    The point was that all it takes is one or two (in this case 4 out of 300) people to make a big stink out of nothing. Just like how the ATHF boards were placed in numerous cities across the country, yet only one flew off the handle, all it takes is one idiot who doesn't get the joke to ruin it for everyone.

    ^....pretty much my thoughts. Funny, but idiots are, well, idiots and something like this should have been anticipated. Ah well.
