Experts Stumped By Great Copy Machine Epidemic, Ask Schools for Help

When an internationally acclaimed expert on rare diseases named Dr. Oleg C. Kalapushkenitz arrived on the scene just one week ago schools had every reason to hope he might be aware of a cure lurking somewhere in the world for the strange, contagious disease striking school photocopiers during The Great Copy Machine Epidemic of 2008.

Unfortunately, this most accomplished of experts came to the conclusion late Friday afternoon that even he is stumped by the symptoms. And his assistants agree... According to Dr. K, "They just keep chewing up trees and contributing to global warming. It's impossible to suggest a cure when we simply don't know the cause."

And apparently the disease has continued to spread; for as he told TH this morning, "With 19 schools in 10 U.S. states and even the nation of Curacao confirming local outbreaks in just the past three weeks it's definitely contagious!"
Then he went on to tell us, "It seems the only hope we have for finding a solution is if teachers and students across America are willing to join together in a national day of action to help stop this disease from contributing to global warming. There's no doubt that their creativity, sense of adventure, and cooperative spirit are the keys to success."

When pressed on what schools could do he said simply, "Get involved with The Great Copy Machine Epidemic of 2008. April 17th is just days away!"

*** Reminder: The deadline to register a confirmed case in The Great Copy Machine Epidemic of 2008 is this Tuesday, April 15th! ***
