This report should remind you not to leave your suspicious packages lying around. The bomb squad raced to Philadelphia's baseball park. They responded to a report of three mysterious packages. Only after they exploded the packages did they realize the heavily wrapped items were hot dogs. They had been used as props in a commercial for the Philadelphia Phillies. The suspicious items had last been handled by the team mascot, the Phillie Phanatic.
