New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has released a statement
that said there is no danger from a natural gas odor that is being reported in
Manhattan. Residents have been smelling the strange odor all morning, which is
apparently from a minor gas leak. "We are waiting for the gas to pass," the
mayor said. Yes, that is an exact quote
Thank God for Michael Bloomberg, who today gives us a chance to play our very own version of "Overheard in New York." I beg you, I beseech you, I implore you to take this joke in the waiting wherever your juvenile sense of humor allows you to go. Here's a couple entries from me to prime your pump:
- The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty has been updated to read as follows: "Bring me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and tell them to pull my finger."
- "If I can break wind there, I'll break it anywhere!"
