Unusual Bomb Hoax

Normally I don't like to mention bomb hoaxes, since giving them any attention only plays into the hoaxer's hand, but this case seems to be an exception. A man, while clearing out his closet, threw out a fake bomb that he had once created for a marketing project in college. The next day his building was evacuated when someone saw it lying in the dumpster. Full story at the NY Times (reg. required).
