Elevator Escalator Safety

2002-01-07 18:51:58+00 by TC 6 comments

Hey Boys & Girls we only have 11 months left to plan for Elevevator & Escalator Safety Awareness Week. Yes yes I know they can be dangerous devices in the wrong hands and please don't send me email about how your aunt was maimed at the mall or I'll go back to using the <sarcasm> type tags or even perhaps a looney toon character shtick.
Note:While googling(thats a verb right?)to fix the above link I found this flash safety movie. A rapping cartoon cat giving safety tips. Prisoners (ala Clockwork Orange) should be forced to watch this...

"I have an escalator, and I'm not afraid to use it."

"Look out! The man's got an elevator! Everybody down!"

Aaand, eerily familiar to those who grew up in rural areas and know the stock response to requests for hunting permits:

"Excuse me sir, do you have a license for that thing?"

"Why yes officer, it's posted inside, why don't you have a look..."

Dang it, Pete, you shouldn't have got me going on the silliness...

Hey, Todd, I just followed this, and it points to the gnome guy story. Got the real URL around?

Couldn't resist it, could you Todd. You get us salivating for a cat rapping out a safety tips and then you give us a link right back to the elevator/escalator safety site. ;-)

Snicker. Not only do I need to implement a spell checker, I need a "did you really mean to link to the same site as..." checker.

Doh! DOh! DOH! I'm using Xemacs and wordpad and keep screwing up what ends up in the clipboard. Dan I'm sorry to report that when pirates attack your merchant ships a window with a rapping cat opens up <gulp> the perils of surfing and coding at the same time.....did I read spell checker??
