Escape from New York to Reading

More than 300,000 people were told today to evacuate New York to dodge the wrath of Hurricane Irene.

Someone in the office asked where they all will go.

A question dumber than asking why Mafia dons don’t have email addresses or Facebook friends.

They’re all coming to Reading, of course. Don’t they all?

Wait until all 300,000 New Yorkers cross the Penn Street Bridge. It’ll have more cracks than a nightclub comic.

Been a helluva week in Reading so far, huh?

First an earthquake, now Irene and the massive exodus of New Yorkers coming to town.

I guess whosoever shall not fall by the sword or by famine or by pestilence will either be crushed or drowned.

Have a good weekend.
