FM Observer’s First Annual Panicfest Cancelled Due To Lack Of Toilet Paper

You can’t spell “pandemic” with “panic”!

Fargo, ND – What was to be a celebratory reminder to everyone to not panic during a Global Pandemic has been cancelled due to lack of toilet paper.

Panicfest organizers made the tough decision to cancel the first annual event after realizing that the number of available rolls of toilet paper for sale in the region is now down to zero.

Had the event not been cancelled, Panicfest attendees were going to be asked to group themselves into clusters of nine in order to not break the Gathering Of 10+ rule.

Here are the six things to do in order to maximize your chances of survival during a Global Pandemic:

1. Don’t panic!

2. If you do panic, certainly don’t freak out.

3. Stockpile toilet paper next to your Bible and guns.

4. Organize your liquor cabinet alphabetically.

5. Put everything you touch into its own separate zip-lock bag.

6. If someone comes near you, call 9-1-1.

Creative Ways To Decline An Offer (Besides Just Saying No)

If just saying NO doesn’t work, try one of these negative phrases:

West Fargo, ND – Your FM Observer recently brought in two excellent professional life coaches to instruct our entire staff on how to say “NO” in a number of different ways.

Let’s face it, there are many times you’re asked if you’d want to volunteer for a committee, or buy a coupon booklet, or get involved in some weekly activity. At the time, you know you should decline, but for some reason you say YES (and later regret it).

Certified Life Coaches Sonja Yust and Tony Jauss (who headquarter out of New Orleans, or NO-town) had us practice saying a number of useful phrases that can be used when trying to decline an offer when someone is asking you to do something you’d really rather not agree to.

After first responding by saying “Why do you ask?” then use any of these cleverly designed phrases as an alternative to just saying NO:

β¦Ώ What part of “Nyet” don’t you understand?
β¦Ώ This is not part of my agenda for this decade.
β¦Ώ All signs are pointing toward non-concurrence.
β¦Ώ My jurisdiction doesn’t cover this type of fiasco.
β¦Ώ Thanks for asking, and for never bringing it up again.
β¦Ώ I can commit to not committing to your misguided plans.
β¦Ώ I gave up doing things that make me want to kill myself.
β¦Ώ Let me think about it and I’ll get back to you in 20 years.
β¦Ώ This idea is more undesirable to me than nude ice fishing.
β¦Ώ Unfortunately, I don’t see this as being on my Vision Board.
β¦Ώ I am currently not in the market to buy what you’re selling.
β¦Ώ There are more gullible people you should discuss this with.
β¦Ώ You seem to be barking up the wrong tree at the wrong time.
β¦Ώ Your presentation is not falling into any common sense category.
β¦Ώ You should rethink this idea until it starts to make some sense.
β¦Ώ My news years resolution was to avoid stupid ideas like this one.
β¦Ώ I would rather remove my own gallbladder with a rusty pitchfork.
β¦Ώ Life is too short to pursue things like this that seem to totally suck.
β¦Ώ I’ll consider your idea after the Minnesota Vikings win the Super Bowl.
β¦Ώ This is the exit point at which I plan on disembarking this train to hell.
β¦Ώ There are worse things I could agree to but I can’t think of any right now.
β¦Ώ Sorry. That’s the day of my grandmother’s soccer game, and I never miss those!

β¦Ύ Ironically, all of the letters in both “Sonja Yust” and “Tony Jauss” can easily be re-arranged to: “Just Say No!”

Top Ten Winter Words North Dakotans Are Getting Really Sick Of

Fargoans have really gotten to hate the word Arctic.

Fargo, ND – Our FM Observer reporters fanned out across the region to knock on doors asking people what winter words they are getting most tired of hearing.

After doing so, we then empirically compiled the comprehensive list into a scientific study.

We believe it is totally scientific because we used the word empirical.

What follows is a scientific poll of the Top Ten words or phrases that people living in this region are getting really sick of hearing:

10. Winter Snowstorm
9. Frizzle
8. Alberta Clipper
7. Pre-Shoveling
6. Snownami*
5. Windchill Factor
4. Black Ice
3. Blizzard Warning
2. Polar Vortex
1. Arctic

* Snownami is the scientific word for the large ridge of snow left at the end of driveways after the street plows come by to do their due diligence.
