Mayor Wonders About Bulky Object On Desk


(Toledo, OH) Mayor Carty Finkbeiner, surveying the office he left four years ago, noticed an electronic device on the desk that Jack Ford left behind.

"It kind of looks like a TV, but I can't seem to get any episodes of 'The Golden Girls' on it," he said, scratching his head. "That's a really funny show about these sassy old gals and their crazy hijinks."

Finkbeiner noted the presence of appendages to the TV-like device.

"There's this flat plastic thingy that looks kind of like a typewriter, and a big box that everything is connected to," he said. "It looks like something from that 'Close Encounters' movie I liked so much."

Attempts to contact Finkbeiner by email were unsuccessful; an autoresponse from the city's server indicated that there was "no such user" on the 22nd Floor.

Finkbeiner said that he will contact Ford's people about the device.

"Hey - it's been two weeks - he needs to get his stuff out of here," he said. "What the heck am I going to do with something like this?"

Comments:
Maybe it's some kind of VCR, but I can't figure out where the tape goes.
 
Ha!
 
What the *&#! I'm no typist. Get this &*##! thing outta here and give it to one of the girls in the typing pool.
 
"It looks like something from that 'Close Encounters' movie I liked so much."

Ya like Carty has had any recent Close Encounters with anything approaching reality.
