Who cares if that picture is real? I don't want to live in a world where I can't contemplate the scenario. Someone had to go to the trouble of opening a Word file, typing the blurb, blowing up the font and finally sticking it with some tape to the window and taking a picture, rather than just calling animal control. I also love the idea of a whole building being held under...
