The Post-Gazette and flood name indecision

So we thought the Post had decided on “The Downtown Flood” for the title of the freakish incident on Wednesday.


We were wrong. Seems they’ve encountered a bit of indecision, likely born out of jealousy over the genius title thought up by Fester.

Today they’ve named it, with CAPITAL letters, my friends: The Great Water Main Break!

Whoa! That is like, deep. They’re going to have a power surge if they aren’t careful, what with all the incredible creative energy they’ve got floating around at the PG. One flood. Two names. They are blazing trails over there!

    I guess that’s better than the “Brown Water Torrent of ’05”

    My wife works in Gateway 2. Many many Beamers were creamed.

    Now I’ve got no choice but to start compiling a list. Maybe we can have a poll and see which title we would like this flood to be referred to in the history books.
