The LA Department of Power and Water is saying that yesterday’s blackout was the result of one of their employees accidentally cutting the wrong power line. Apparently, it went something like this…
**snip – BZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAP**
Bill: "Dooood! You weren’t supposed to cut those lines."
Ted: "You sure? The boss told us to cut some of these lines, dude."
Bill: "But not ALL of them, dude!"
Ted: "Oh. Bogus. Think we should put some of them back, dude?"
Bill: "Fer shure, dude."
Ted: "Kay, I’ll just hook some up to the main power station here, that way if it shorts out, the fail safe system that protects the whole grid from power spikes will automatically shut everything down all over the valley."
[Bill & Ted do the air guitar thing]
Ted: "There, that should do it, dude."
**zzzzt - pkafff – FOOM**
Bill: "Hey dude, why’d it just get so dark and quiet all over LA?
Bill & Ted: "Bogus…"
Hey, at least my buddy Mark will be glad to know it wasn’t done on purpose (since he still didn’t have any power in his hotel room at 11:00 last night).
