I was walking down Water Street downtown this evening, and happened on a Con Ed crew. Consolidated Edison is our gas, and power company here. That's the company I think founded by that anti-semite, racist, crook, and patent thief Thomas Edison.
Yeah I'm a cranky bastard.
Anyway I was walking by these guys, and I hear one say from down in the manhole.
"...should I cut this line or what?"
Then his foreman sez.
"Nah ya crazy we'd have an explosion!"
The crewman next to him jokes.
"Holy shit that sucker would'a taken out half da block".
Me I just keep walking. Just another day in the Emerald City.
