It's not clear who put a pipe bomb in a news rack outside a Jack in the Box in West Los Angeles, if it was meant for someone in particular, or if it was because they didn't get the curly fries they ordered, but that bomb exploded early Wednesday morning.

Luckily no one was injured in the small blast, though authorities say the ceramic pipe bomb caused "limited property damage," according to L.A. Now.

A bomb squad was sent to the explosion site near the fast food restaurant, reports City News Service, and so far no arrests have been made.
