FW: Lobby clock- For heaven's sake, no! I've seen the future
Anchor 1: Some sad news tonight from our Austin affiliate, lawyer Wade Porter, disappointed that the clock in the lobby of his building had been off by an hour for an extended period of time met a tragic end this weekend. After sending out a firmwide email noting how he was going “to fix it myself this weekend”, Porter- Instead of enjoying “Miller time”-attempted to fix the clock and apparently became entangled in it’s Inner working.
Proving that “time waits for no man”, a portion of the clock detached, struck Porter in the head ,and sent him off his ladder to the floor, where he met “an untimely end” at some point this weekend. The exact “time of death” can’t be pinpointed because the clock was broken and Porter was not discovered until Monday morning despite crack building security patroling the office building. Bystanders who reported the smell of decomposition where mistakenly told that the smell was from the operation of a nearby Thai eatery.
Porter, a lifelong Houston Astro’s fan loved “Lima Time”, his law partners reported that his favorite band was Morris Day and the Time, and he had recently attended a halloween costume party as Flavor –Flav, from the hit MTV series “Flavor of Love”, wearing Mr. Flav’s signature crown and a large timepiece around his neck. Now, it’s weather time with Burton Fitzsimmons
Burton: ha, ha. Thanks for that “timely” story. It was funny,except for the death part. Seriously, Wade was a fan who took the “time” to give me a shout out on his blog , but hey folks “time marches on “ and its marching toward fall. Better break out those sweaters, it going to be highs in the 60’s.
I have had it with the lobby clock being an hour late for all this time. I promise that I will fix it myself this weekend.
