On Distaster Footage from the Department of Homeland Security: February 7, 2008


In which The Gay Recluse ponders the transformation of the monumental into the mundane (and vice versa).

Date of Incident: February 6, 2008

Time: 7:14 am

Causes of Disaster: Undetected crack in containment vessel.

Remarks: A crack in the single-hulled design of the containment vessel went undetected overnight, leading to nasty seepage all over the shelves of the refrigerator. Due to the early hour of the incident, extensive emotional trauma was inflicted during the clean-up operation. Although legislation requiring double-hulled containment vessels has been proposed, industry lobbying makes passage unlikely. Voluntary adoption appears equally unlikely, given that implementation costs are expected to remain prohibitively expensive.

Dear readers, we invite you to submit disaster footage and any relevant information (background conditions, attribution, etc.) to thegayrecluse@gmail.com.
