"California's Queer Quake"
About 75 minutes after this morning's Southern California earthquake, Reverend Wiley Drake named the seismic event, "the California Queer Quake," and announced via email to his nationwide followers that "another queer quake [is] trying to get California's attention."
Won't you listen, damn it?
"Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire," quoted Drake, a resident of Buena Park."
"We had better listen," he added. "5.8 this time. What is next?"
Wiley's pretty wily, isn't he? Scientists have said for years that California is due for a massive magnitude 7.9 quake or larger sometime within the next decade.
He can call that one the Foot Tapper Quake.
