Headline of the Day: UN Evacuated Over 'Suspicious Odor'

There's been a distinct odor emanating from the UN for decades. Somebody just noticed?
The UN Security Council and General Assembly were evacuated Tuesday because of a "suspicious odor," according to a UN spokesman.
I had no idea Hugo Chavez was visiting Manhattan.

Apparently there's a sewage backup.
A sewage backup caused a big stink at the United Nations on Tuesday, forcing diplomats and their staff to evacuate the Security Council and General Assembly.

Spokesman Farhan Haq said the evacuation was a precautionary measure after a strange smell was noticed in parts of the U.N. secretariat building. He said the odor was due to sewage backup possibly caused by high tides in the nearby East River.
Obviously global warming climate change is responsible for the rising tides in the East River.
