Remember that scene in “Lethal Weapon 2” with the exploding toilet? Well, a guy in Tennessee thought it’d be fun to have a recreation.

On Saturday, an entire neighborhood in Tullahoma, Tennessee had to be evacuated after two guys got in an argument, which led to a bomb scare. Apparently, at some point during the argument, one of the men sat down on the toilet and the other guy told him that there was a pressure-sensitive device rigged to the bowl, and if he stood up, the whole thing would blow up.

As a precaution 300 people from 90 homes in the area had to be evacuated so the bomb squad could come in and investigate. After several hours, it was determined that there was no bomb on the toilet and residents were allowed back in their homes.

The 42-year-old man who made the threat was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.

Probably good. Seems like he could use a reality check.
