The idea was proposed by Pacific Gas & Electric when an accident cut power to two million homes in California just before a Donald Trump speech.
A survey later found the inability to watch Trump on TV raised residents’ happiness quotient several points, reduced their blood pressure and made them feel 43% more optimistic about the future.
A citizen’s committee was formed and offered to pay the electric company to cut power whenever Trump was due to speak. As the companies would get paid for doing bugger all, it’s widely expected that the suggestion will be approved by shareholders. It is, after all, the American way.
Expectations are that the State would benefit by a more motivated workforce, lower drug use and a 21% increase in veganism.
The local State Legislature is considering a bill to put the power cuts into law.
At a press conference, a Whitehouse spokesperson was about to give an official response to the proposed power cuts but the power failed before they could speak.
What’s the best thing you stole during the last power cut?
Power cuts or political speeches?
