It Was Just A 'Novelty Grenade' Near the WTC Site, No Biggie

Hundreds of people were evacuated from Two World Financial Center, a large skyscraper across the street from where the Twin Towers used to stand after mailroom workers flagged a a suspicious package. The item was reportedly just a novelty grenade mounted on a plaque that read: “Complaint Dept. Pull Pin.” What a hilarious thing to send. Anyhow, the all clear has been given and people are allowed back into the building, ending what was presumably a really nice—albeit terrifying—work break. (Photo: @cgeeezy)
