Swiss Siren Test

(YouTube link)

In Switzerland, they stage a nationwide test of emergency sirens every February. The annual test was performed a couple of days ago. To remind people ahead of time, this ad was aired explaining the process. The actual procedure is probably not exactly like this, but if you want to get people’s attention, sometimes you need to slap a sheep. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

Reminds me of a joke.

The telephone operator in a town in Kentucky received a call every morning asking for the correct time. Finally, overcome with curiosity, she asked the inquirer, "Would you mind telling me why you call about this time every day and ask for the correct time?"

"Sure, I'll tell you," the man said. "I want to get the exact time because I'm the man who blows the factory whistle at twelve o'clock."

"Well, that's funny," said the operator, "because every day at the stroke of noon I set our clock by your whistle."
