+++ PRESS RELEASE McMac Productions 16/06/21 +++
The Votalyzer ™ was alarming to indicate that no votes had been cast for 24 hours. After a thorough inspection by our technicians for problems (Hanging Chads on the punch card, burnt out valves or moths trapped in a relay) an executive decision was made to fire up the publicity department’s reserve emergency interest generator.
Accordingly at 12:04 the machine was booted from cold by a team of crisis professionals (picture)
The generator was brought up to speed and all functions checked before it was placed on line at 14:35. It is expected to remain running until the close of the voting period. A spokesman for McMac Productions stated “We confidently expect many more votes to flood in as a result of the action we have taken. Meanwhile the Votalyzer ™ will be thoroughly checked and serviced prior to it’s crucial role in tallying the votes on Saturday evening for the next exciting subject for the ever popular RTF photo competition!”
