A package that was delivered through the military postal system to U.S. Army Garrison - Yongsan, Korea with a return address of Grosse Tete, Louisiana exploded today, injuring one. 

Grosse Tete is German for "Big Boobs".

Since the Post Office delivered the package, the case is now a federal investigation. A spokesperson with the Postal Inspection Service said whoever sent this small bomb through the mail will face federal felony charges.

"Apparently a package was delivered in the mail today. When Mr. (Les) Chamness opened that package, it detonated.  There was some kind of explosive device inside that package," said Lt. Barney Witless with the Yongsan Criminal Investigation Division.

The package had come in the mail addressed to "Hot Stuff x,"  one of the names the intended victim uses on the internet. Lt. Witless said Chamness opened the package to find what looked like five tubes inside, bound by cardboard and wrapped in tape. Moments later the box detonated.

A witness at the mailroom parking lot said he saw the remains of the explosion and reported that it looked like only one of the devices in the box exploded.

Authorities are searching the Grosse Tete area for the person who mailed the package containing the bomb.  Little is known about the perpetrator, other than it is a male who enjoys fine cigars and has used the alias "Wescat".

Really cool.

I have to tell you though. When I was in the military the mail system was more vigilant and this sort of thing just did not happen.

Hope you recover soon Les.

Good bomb. Hopefully, it did not take long for the package to travel from Grosse Tete to Korea.

Grosse Tete is German for "Big Boobs"


In the "for what it's worth" Dept.:

In Louisiana I'd think it was from the original French, not German?

Grosse Tete means "Big Head" in French. "Tetons," however, is slang in French for "Boobs."

I didn't :) I just found it interesting that the "German" town was in Louisiana and not, say, Pennsylvania and that's it's more than likely the name is from the French.
