a lonely heart under ring on an empty stomach shoulder to cry on this is what makes us ass. Well To night sad news. Listeners old. Woman Josie says that the angels who have been living with her helping around the house and ultimately protecting her from all evils have disappeared.
It's hard to say just how sad this news is for two important reasons: one angels are not real and two. We are not allowed to know about their existence or hierarchical structure. Josie called this weekend and to video our state an intern she's, tat the angels often leave her for a few hours or days at a time, but they ve ever been goin for three straight weeks. She thinks that they are off. Fighting an important war for good, but she's worry that maybe she just the mad bored angel. Get bored very easily. Josie said which is strange because they are eternal and there is a lot of downtime during immortality video
told Josie that angels aren't real and that we can not no such things about them. But this just made video cry, because if you talk about angel and you are one who has been secretly chosen by angels for special. Angelic purposes? You will we'll start crying video, has been sobbing quite a bit this morning? As a matter of fact, I keep asking her. Are you ok, But she just says angels. Real and then berries her heaving face into her in her elbow and runs off dear listeners. It pierce the angels if they they are real and they are not have left night veil. And none of us are allowed to know this so

Ladies and gentlemen, we ve been getting reports that several yellow helicopters have been seen, hovering above town you are all aware of the black helicopters which our world, government and blue helicopters, which our secret police and the helicopters. We have detailed murals of diving birds of prey which are the helicopters that too, all the children in night veil away a few months ago. We still don't know what those helicopters are, but
they did bring all the children back unharmed and much more well behaved than before. So they are deemed just as safe as the other helicopters, these new, yellow helicopter. No one. Quite know they tend to hover in tax of three or more in fixed locations for several minutes. For moving on this the council, has said that the helicopters are our guests and nation be treated as such, but added that the helicopter More specifically, are on. Invited guests and should be treated with fear, hatred and controlled panic. If you any more information on these yellow helicopters. Keep it to yourself there's no question: they can hear every move every
didn't. You make be quiet, Stay inside already, no less go now to sports. After second straight loss. This weekend, night veil, high school football coach, Nasser I'll mood. You he'd expressed some concern over Signor quarterback MIKE Sendero. Those poor play last season, these scorpions one, the division title under Sendero leadership and special powers he had acquired from multiple lightning strikes, one such advantage The second head he had grown, which helped him see Rushing line backers and get better reads on zone coverage, but in the off season say narrow, had one of his heads, Sir,
equally removed, leaving him with only the head that speaks rush in. Angry fan speculate that because Sendero no longer looks like his original self and because he no longer speaks English. Nor spanish, he does not the same rapport with his teammates. When ass, whether or not Sendero, was losing the respective his team coach Almah gee. He said our boys play together our boys a good gains. We, the two and here he paused clearly sat with his star quarterbacks decision to get off season surgery without consulting team trainers. We, I want to be good football boys. He concluded the coach then reached his fingers into his mouth pulling his
tongue slowly out slowly. Slowly, not stopping. He kept pole, his seemingly endless tongue out staring Yet the reporters the whole time after he stretched it to about two feet. The last rapporteur left the room clear, you, shake in the coach remained in his office quietly and with what I'd eyes, pulling out he is enormous Tom Larry Leroy, out on the edge of town, says that just this morning he was visited by a man in a tan jacket who carried a deerskin suitcase Larry, said the man approached his farm and asked about how much sunshine he had been getting. I told him
John Peters. You know the farmer, his imaginary corn crop had been good this summer and the sun seem to be doing just fine, Larry said although some days there's no sunrise at all, and on other days the sunrise is extremely loud. Larry added that this was a pretty strange question. Asking about how much sunshine heap in getting The sun comes up every day, save those two or three sunless days. Last week, Larry said he was a nice enough. Fellow though named Emmett Larry said he couldn't remember exactly what ever it looked like, nor what his last name was when asked. To ever was Larry replied. The fellow in the ten jacket. Who told you just said: the man's name was Emmett Larry replied,
earnest. I said then don't bug me down son. Then he slapped the reporters tape recorder, making the following loud dumping noise. Larry said that after the man left his home, he saw a dark black line in the sky coming from heavens down to near where old woman Josie lives down by the old car longed. He said he thinks it. Probably something to do with those weird tall friends of hers that fly around and make loud trumpet noises and will not stop smiling all the time when asked. If he meant angels, Larry applied. Don't bug me down son and started weeping angels are real.
He said through quick, breaths and incomprehensible tears. As part of our service to our town, nightmare Community radio is taking another moment to allow one of the candidates for mayor to make a brief statement the following is from. Hi Rome me.

we received word from old woman Josie that half a dozen yellow helicopters are circling her home. At this moment, She also said that she is receiving no sunlight, she's as all of her clocks tell her it's the middle of the day, but that she receiving to sunlight, and yes, I'm looking at our own station clocks, including the of Carlos gave me for our one month anniversary the war she said is the one true time: peace in all of night veil and it is indeed the Middle but the day I have only been on the air a few minutes and before I arrived in this studio, the sun was definitely out, no clouds, the sky. See also told us that she used her old opera glasses to look more closely at the helicopters,
stand aside for our younger listeners, Josie was the chairwoman of the Night Veil opera for many years until it folded in the early nineties nineties when they massive puppy infestation destroyed the theatres infrastructure. Josie said each helicopter has a law. Urge triangular logo with an orange ass in the middle. She doesn't know what that means, but she thinks the darkness enveloping her home. Is the angels last act to try to protect her? wherever they have gone, they have left, behind a protective shade, keeping out the helicopters and all other dark forces, I reminded her that angels aren't real. She said, as if I hadn't, even interrupted that if she falls
so does this town There was a long pause and then she said, We never go bowling anymore. Cecil is that I don't know I reflected there has been a tiny underground army living under the bowling alley and they declare war on all of us, the injured, my new boyfriend. Also, a new boyfriend. Listen, we should totally get the team back together and go to league night again just like old times. I would like that is so she said, but there her voice slowed turning cold as we were strangers with wrong numbers. I'm read the sunlight has come back and the phone went silent, listeners, I do not know what is happening or to who
these helicopters belong, but I do know that we must protect our town night veil protected from all outsiders, whether they, are flying machines or tiny, warmongering civilizations or simply neighbours who don't say the pledge of allegiance loudly enough.
