BOSTON COPS RESPOND TO REPORT OF ARMED MAN LURKING IN SUBWAY STATION: IT WAS BOBA FETT
So I get it, Boston. There’s at least one person in the city who has never (ever) owned a television. Or seen a movie. And I do mean ever. Because besides having a total inability to recognize major icons, there’s not really any other assumption to make. I don’t know. Maybe this person lives and breathes panic on the 24 hour news cycle, and the latest mass shooting news from Tennessee sent them over the edge. Because how else can you explain someone calling the police to warn them of an armed individual lurking around a busy train station on Friday night? Well, easily, I suppose. If that “armed” individual wasn’t Boba Fett.
IT SEEMS THAT MASS SHOOTINGS HAVE EVEN MADE BOBBA FETT COSPLAY SEEM DANGEROUS
But this may yet be another solid reason to push for some kind of gun control in the United States. Besides all of the, uh, deaths of people young and old, that is. But imagine if America was a country where anyone who saw an individual dressed up as Boba Fett carrying a toy Star Wars gun -Fett’s gun, no less- simply thought it was pretty cool that some geeks went all in? Sure, cosplay isn’t for everyone. I have one friend I saw on social media who went around New York’s Central Park recently dressed as Star Trek officers “exploring” a new world. Fortunately for them, no one called the police over their nerd lurking.
MULTIPLE POLICE UNITS RESPONDED TO SCENE, AND QUICKLY REALIZED BOBBA FETT WAS NO THREAT TO PUBLIC SAFETY
So what was Boba Fett doing in Beantown, anyway? Well, cosplay, obviously. They were heading to an anime convention in town and took public transportation. Fortunately for all, the “multiple police units” that responded didn’t result in any shooting misunderstandings. The Beantown flatfoots talked to Boba Fett and quickly established that there was no threat from the off-world bounty hunter. Then they tweeted that everything was safe for commuters in the Celtic city.
