Suspected earthquake hits Urbandale, Iowa….
On January 23rd, a suspected earthquake of sizeable proportions struck a small area of Urbandale, Iowa. All Plasticvillians should be concerned with the complete destruction of the communal deck for the often held Sunday brunch of Train Party. Early reports had the Mayor of Plasticville consumed (smashed) under the deck, where he has been known to park his vehicle for protection. It can now be reported that the Mayor and most importantly his vehicle were not in the vicinity at the time of the quake.
After Mr. Eddy discovered that he was not covered by earthquake insurance, it was determined that the cause of the disaster was a large ice slide from the upper portions of his roof. It was very astute of Mr. Eddy to re-address the actual cause of this mishap, because now it would appear that insurance will be assisting in the recovery effort.
A special “sing-a-long” benefit has been suggested to bring in additional funds to help with the disaster relief efforts…..Send your funds to
DNE Relief Fund
P.O. Box 3048
Des Moines, Iowa 50316
Some of your donation “may” be tax deductible, please check with your attorney, accountant or tax adviser. Also a write-in campaign to the Obama’ “how-many-$$$-can-I-print” democracy has been solicited as a new stimulus fund for this Midwest disaster. The new and improved replacement deck will be designed by famous Phi Architect Tom "Taco" Seymour. So it won't be cheap. Please give 'til it hurts.
It is the dream of Mr. & Mrs. Eddy that a new deck will be erected in time for the annual 2010 Train Party. The Chronicle will continue reporting efforts of this tragic saga. More to follow…….
