Vacationing couple disappointed to drive over Golden Gate bridge without getting hit by tidal wave, giant monster, space laser

SAN FRANCISCO – A couple from Vancouver were shocked after driving over the famous Golden Gate Bridge without being annihilated by a natural or supernatural disaster

It had been an ordinary day for Michael and Jennifer Norgate as they toured San Francisco on vacation. “We went to Fisherman’s Wharf in the morning, then had a picnic in the park by the Full House house. But we knew no trip to San Francisco could be complete without plunging into the bay with a few hundred other people after the Bridge gets hit by a meteor. So off we went.”

As the couple approached the bridge Jennifer noticed something felt off. “It was overcast weather, no idyllic sunlight, just kind of plain. Once we got on the bridge I kept my eyes on the bay and the sky while Michael drove. I didn’t see a 200-metre tidal wave or any massive military build-up, but it’s a long bridge and I figured we had time.”

Michael described his anticipation building when some afternoon traffic slowed their progress mid-span. “I thought, ‘here we go, I’ll honk my horn, roll the window down, then look up to see a 50-tonne spider come crashing through the roadway. Or I’ll smile at Jennifer, then look past her to see a 5-km wide spaceship headed straight for us. I had that excited/scared feeling when I imagined desperately trying to unlock the door before our inevitable death. Then the traffic just sort of cleared, and we were on our way. We ended up having dinner at a nice taco place in Sausalito, it was a disaster.”

The disappointed couple are now planning a week-long trip to Paris to “stand on the Eiffel Tower and hope for an interdimensional being to use it as a baseball bat.”
