"This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. The broadcasters of your area in voluntary cooperation with the Federal, State and local authorities have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. If this had been an actual emergency, the Attention Signal you just heard would have been followed by official information, news or instructions. This station serves the Phoenix, Airheadzona area. This concludes this test of the Emergency Broadcast System. You may now go back to your bottle of Zinfandel."

This was a very insightful and enlightening post. Your use of fonts was creative and nothing sort of incredible. I look forward to reading more. I am now a follower of your blog!

What the hell was that?

DISCCONNECTED ~
Glad ya liked it, because I think it's the best thing I've ever posted on "Stuffs". And you're right about that lazy dog, of course. Not only is he a maroon, but he ran away with the spoon!

YVONNE ~
Because it was there.

LEE ~
Ha!-Ha!-Ha! You REALLY made me laugh!
What the hell do you mean "What the hell was that?"? It was a test, of course. I thought I made that point perfectly clear.

Are you complying with the new FCC rule?

"The FCC has proposed amending its rules governing the Emergency Alert System (EAS) in order to test and improve the effectiveness of the system. In particular, the Commission has proposed that all EAS participants be required to join in a nationwide test -- to be scheduled by the FCC in consultation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) -- to ensure that the system will function properly to inform the public in the event of a national crisis. The FCC proposes to implement the national test on a yearly basis."

If so, I comment your adherence to this program so vitally important to the National Interest.

Ha!-Ha! Well, you know me, Brother. Far be it from me to ever fight the system or to be found in noncompliance.

I'm nothing if not a good company boy willing to go along to get along. I hope to be a bureaucrat with a corner office and an assigned covered parking space someday! [:-O)

Your test might have used the sentence:

"Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country."

But you didn't use these traditional words. Why not? You some kinda commie or something?

Aww, NO!
Please don't go "#2" on me!


--> Your test might have used the sentence:
"Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country."


You make a valid point. But then where would the dog be? Hmmm? Riddle me THAT!

This is indeed a very thought provoking post.

I hope you are not suggesting my dog is lazy. I literally worship my dog. The fox? He just goes to and fro in the earth, and from walks up and down in it.
