I think it's for the best that NG's name stays out of this one, to be honest. NG doesn't have the best track record for stuff like this, and the last thing any of the admins (or anyone else for that matter) need is another shitstorm over what NG may-or-may-not- have caused.

Even with our track record, people quickly forget until the next big thing comes up. Maybe this will help us finally go back up the ladder. Until Fox News gets their hands on it, of course.

Actually, this could have been the closest thing to a school attack in Britain. A very big thing if you ask me, especially amidst the recent, unfortunate school shootings.

Really? America won't even care until at least 10 people get shot. Even then everyone forgets by the time a new episode of American Idol is on.

True, but the BBC have done sort of follow-up articles on stuff like this before. You're probably right though, this incident is far too localised. On top of that, most follow-ups are on stuff that was successfully... or they're in London. The BBC are a major worldwide media outlet, but they do delve into the depths of British local life too, if only a little. People are talking about TV news now, which I find very unlikely, unless you're watching local Norfolk news.

Anyway, it's none of our concern. The hardest part is over, and it's destined to be another part of Newgrounds history to use against people who have only recently signed up and aren't in the know.

You know it will happen!

Actually, just because it's not a big deal in America doesn't mean it won't be big in the UK.

Newgrounds finds a way to avert a crisis and make a huge joke out of it.

I live around there, so I'll keep a look out on the news for you. Really don't think it'll get much attention though. Oh, and I watch GMTV in the morning for a few minutes as they do the news, so it may appear then.

Awesome, the news outlets are picking it up. I wonder which one of us is the "member of the public?"

Also, I'm just gonna post this TL;DR writeup on every page. :P

They really should have said "Members" instead of member. If they want to not name names then that's fine, but they should at least keep the story accurate. More than one person called the cops.

Now I fucking hate Sirtom93.

Just wanted to see if this story was worthy of being on the main news headlines page on the BBC website(no btw), and reading the headlines I discovered a very sad horrible story of animal cruelty, which I cried to while reading it. While I am aware that Sirtom didn't kill this animal, it's his fault for being such a little prick and trying to blow up people that my eyes were on this page in the first place!
