image for Mount St. Helens Ready to Blow Again!

Shaken by a mild earthquake after two months of earth tremors, citizens of the state of Washington are on edge again, afraid that the volcano on Mount St. Helens may blow again.

"Just like last time, in 19 ought 80, no one warns us that that mountain is ready to blow again", stated Clarence "Old Hickory" Dickory, a local Doc.

After someone pointed out that before the mountain blew up in 1980, there were thousands of warnings all over the television, Doc Dickory stated that he didn't own one of those time-wasters.

"I'm on call at all times of the night. I gotta sleep sometime."

Nessie Loch, a local citizen in a near-by small town pretty much agreed with the Doc.

"They are going to fool around with there fingers up their brains and let that mountain blow up again! And here we sit without a warning."

Once again, our reporter asked about the daily tremors over the past six months.

"Oh, Artie and I have had those for nearly ten years. He says it comes from our drinking our own alcohol."

Person after person we spoke to told us that they hope last night's big fireball being blasted into the air would wake up those responsible for warning them that the volcano could blow up at any time.

Meanwhile, David Flintstone told us, "Here I sit in my cabin on the mountainside...house done slid ten feet down the way, and no one giving out any warning. You'd think they'd have forced us all out by gunpoint but do that do that? No!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
