I wonder what OLIVE the other reindeer thought about that barrel!?
Funny comments on this one! I tell you what though, I'd much rather have a bomb squad take their time and properly handle this situation, and have it turn out to be an empty barrel, than any other alternative. Hats off to our local law enforcement.
