Intergalactic Forcefield Leaves Toilet Paper Holder Unusable, Investigators Baffled
NEW YORK, NY--(PR NEWSWIRE)-- An invisible force field has materialized in the bathroom of an Upper East Side office building. The spherical orb is completely impenetrable and occupies the space surrounding the bathroom's toilet paper holder. Police officers responding to a panicked 9-1-1 call were left bewildered. A team of scientists has been monitoring the situation closely.
The force, at first believed to be Terrorist generated, may be caused by a tear in the space-time continuum. Niel Bore, an experimental physicist and first responder, discussed the rarity of such an event with NY 1,"The chances of an impenetrable force field appearing in such a small, localized area are simply staggering. Tears in the fabric of space only occur alongside an extraordinary cosmic event - such as the collapse of a super massive star or the explosion of a galaxy." Professor Bore believes the force field may be connected to a black hole millions of light years away.
Office workers, unable to use the toilet paper holder, have begun leaving the toilet paper on a nearby sink. "At first I though my coworkers were just being lazy," said Douglas Cress, employed at the office since 2004. "I mean, it only takes 2 seconds to put the TP on the holder."
The UES toilet paper shortage of 2006 is believed to be unrelated to the incident.
