Heard Over the LA City Hall Loudspeaker This Afternoon
“This is the emergency services coordinator. The report of smoke has been investigated by the Fire Department. It was apparently due to a toaster incident on the first floor. It is now safe to return into the building.”
First off, “toaster incident?” It sounds like the name of a neo-funk folk fusion band, perhaps playing on an off night at Spaceland.
Second, why would there be a PA announcement INSIDE the building that it was safe to return INTO said building? A hearty thanks from all of us up here on the top floors.
Third, City Hall has a PA system? Neat. I wonder if anyone has ever taken it over like Andy Dufresne in “Shawshank?”
