    City Employees Warned of Possible Popcorn Ban Cooking in Seattle
    Thursday, June 14, 2007


    Seattle’s City Hall employees have been warned: a possible popcorn ban is cooking.

    The Fleet and Facilities Department threatened to ban the microwaveable snack in city buildings because of frequent smoke-alarm evacuations sparked by burning kernels, according to a report in the Seattle Times. Since the fire department must respond every time an alarm goes off the ordeal takes at least a half-hour out of the workday.

    “It's been pretty disruptive,” city spokesman Marty McOmber told the paper.

    What has this world come to when you can't even make a bag of popcorn? *shakes head*

    You have to admit, though, that a burnt bag of popcorn stinks up the whole building... and stays around for a long time. apparantly, it was setting off the smoke alarms, and the rules are they had to evacuate the building. :lol

    Last semester, my dorm would not let anyone pop popcorn, because we kept setting the smoke alarm off....Then, everyone has to go out of the building, and wait until the fire guys come.
