Pumpkin Spice Shuts Down High School!

Last month it was the shocking discovery that pumpkin spice latte is racist. Now pumpkin spice is in the news again. And this time it’s worse!

A high school in Baltimore had to be evacuated this afternoon. The fire department was called in, and then a hazmat team, and finally two students and three adults had to be taken to the hospital “with unknown injuries.” (http://www.wbaltv.com/article/cristo-rey-jesuit-hs-evacuated-in-baltimore/12788221)

Why?

Because somebody plugged in a pumpkin spice air freshener and it kinda smelt funny and, well, I guess everybody panicked. We do not know how five people got injured so badly that they had to be taken to the hospital. Running heedlessly down the stairs, maybe, fleeing the dreadful menace of the pumpkin spice?

We dare not imagine what will be pumpkin spice’s next caper. Today a hazmat team; tomorrow, the Navy SEALs?

P.S.–“Hazmat” is short for “hazardous materials.” It does not denote a nomadic Central Asian people with hairy hats.
