Mercer Island residents enraged by possible I-90 tolls...all other Washingtonians prepare world's smallest violin...
Mercer Island residents are once again up in arms over the perceived mistreatment and hardships imposed upon them by their volvo-less neighbors.
"If it is not one thing, it is, of course, another," said Mercer Island resident Duke Channing Charles McChannington III. "With what tax will they assail us next, I wonder? A monocle tax? Well there is little chance I will give them any of my hard-earned gold bullion bars for that, I can assure you," he chortled through his well-oiled mustache.
Mercer Island resident Sean Perryman (real Mercer Island resident) shares Duke McChannington's concern.
"If it's tolled then I don't know, I think I'm going to be stranded here for a little while," he said. (He actually said that).
"Whoopiddydoo!!," exclaimed every single non-Mercer Island resident of Washington. "Stay there!," they added.
