Don’t Say You Weren’t Warned


Sarah Burns, in The Irish Times, reports:

Eleven people were taken to hospital after a small amount of lime was accidentally released inside the flue gas treatment area at the Poolbeg Incinerator in Dublin on Wednesday night.

“Late on Wednesday night a small amount of lime was inadvertently released inside the flue gas treatment area during the commissioning and testing of the Dublin Waste to Energy plant at Ringsend,” said a spokesman for Dublin Waste to Energy Ltd.

“At the time there were a number of workers in an adjacent area. As a precaution, eleven workers were sent to St Vincent’s Hospital nearby for medical evaluation. Two were detained overnight.”

    “The safety of our employees and contractors is of utmost importance to Covanta”

    I don’t believe that for a second.

            Google up George Burns there and steal one of his. He’s dead – e g., ashes to ashes.

    I feel someone is attempting to make a point with this post, and what with that headline, and yes it’s turned into a puntastic mess.

      Now when you pick a paw-paw
      Or a prickly pear
      And you prick a raw paw
      Next time beware
      Don’t pick the prickly pear by the paw
      When you pick a pear
      Try to use the claw
      But you don’t need to use the claw
      When you pick a pear of the big paw-paw
      Have I given you a clue ?
