Say aaaarrrgh!


Great heaven, it is slain at last. This the maw of the beast that has spewed its deadly load of toxins into our newsroom these many years, a dark essence of carcinogenic printer's ink sucked from the bowels of the building. And they call it airconditioning! Today it lay grotesquely next to the fire exit, excavated from the innermost recesses of the old building. When our newsroom was given a complete makeover, only a couple of defiant voices asked why the airconditioning couldn't be replaced first. Given an either/or, the company opted for the swank, and to hell with the workers' innards. A lone crusade by an indefatigable revise sub (indefatigable is a job requirement) and threats from the health department finally won the day after a six-year battle. Spiffy and very expensive new aircon system on the way. Oh, how the beancounters are suffering today.  Posted by Picasa

Whoa that's scary. It looks like a hellmouth. Not that I've seen a hellmouth.

What is this "airconditioning" of which you speak? We only have "heaters" in these parts, you know.
