Computer glitch causes burning in W. Washington : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Due to a Y2K believed error, a government held cache of marijuana was accidentally burned. The computer mis-read the date and ordered the incenerators to activate during a Y2K test, burning 4000 lbs of confiscated contra-band.

Environmental activists are outraged at this mistake. The gray whale migration is just beginning as is the migration of the arctic tern. The concern is that if the birds fly through the smoke,

there will be no tern left un-stoned.

ROFLMAO Thank you B4, I enjoyed that.

Don't let the complaints get you down, some people seem to be a mite testy in the mornings. Must be that rigid stick up their butts bothering them a bit before the drugs take effect....

Stock more prozac, cheerless ones. You know who you are.
