A few years ago Randolph had a very bad day. Angry and upset, he planted a fake pipe bomb on a table along with a few hand-written notes scribbled in red pen. His note said that his delivery was an explosive. He scribbled, “It’s a bomb” and “Boom.”

The recipient of the look-alike bomb and threatening notes immediately called the police. The bomb squad was called out, and they quickly identified the bomb as a fake with no explosive substances. But it looked real enough to cause concern.

The police tracked Randolph to a nearby fast food restaurant and asked him why he planted the fake bomb. Randolph said he was upset and asked, “What, is that illegal?”

It is. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, planting a hoax bomb, and resisting arrest.

So what do you think set Randolph off, and who do you think was the target of his poorly planned lash out?

  1. His soon-to-be ex-wife. In the midst of a nasty divorce battle, he grew very upset with his wife and left the bomb on her kitchen table.
  2. His soon-to-be ex-landlord. Frustrated that he was about to be kicked out of his rental property, Randolph tried to show his landlord just what he thought about the eviction notice.
  3. His former best friend. When his best friend stole his girlfriend, Randolph was extremely upset and lashed out at his former friend with the threatening notes and fake pipe bomb.

Who do you think was the target of Randolph’s fake bomb? Leave your guess in the comments for a chance to be this month’s Super Sleuth!
