Life Imitates Art

In New York, a 15-year old girl has fallen into a manhole while she was texting on her phone. Her parents are suing the city. Her name is Alexa. In response to the workmen’s apology after they helped her out of the hole, she said “They were just, like, ‘I’m sorry! I’m sorry!’”

"Like, Help!", which premiered in Cell Camp's "Social Graceless" sketch comedy revue in April, tells the tale of a teenage girl (Charlisa) who falls into a manhole. Her friend Sreena attempts to get help from a passerby, who finds it hard to understand her teen lingo. Sreena complains, “We should, like, sue the city!”

We are watching the headlines for the first automated drive thru.
