DUMB BLOG ALERT

BRRAAA BA BRRRAAA, BRRAAA BA BRRRAAA
THIS IS A TEST OF THE EMERGENCY BLOGING SYSTEM – THIS IS ONLY A TEST.

I don’t know about where you live, but here in Fresno, the Emergency Broadcast System test message, that is played over the radio, sounds like hell. It’s if the guy giving the message is calling from a thunderstorm in 1938.

Hasn’t our audio technology advanced enough to make a clear sounding message? Maybe the point is to make it raw sounding to get our attention. The blaring tones at the beginning get my attention enough guys, thanks.

Don’t you wish, one of those times the test message comes on, it is an actual, exciting, emergency and not just a test? Something like “Aliens have landed and are milling about around the Corcoran State Prison area. We think they are from Mars. Charles Manson is interpreting for us - more news to follow.”

THIS HAS BEEN A TEST OF THE EMERGENCY BLOGING SYSTEM. IF THIS HAD BEEN AN ACTUAL FUNNY BLOG, LAUGHTER WOULD HAVE ENSUED.
