CHANNEL 6 BREAKING NEWS: Pyra-Miniaturitis Epidemic Sweeps Caribbean. Swift Cure Retrieval Crucial!

A grave epidemic has struck the western hemisphere.   Multiple doctors have reported outbreaks throughout the Caribbean, La Florida, the Carolinas and even as far south as Trinidad.  Its widespread effects are due to a slow-onset gestation period, sometimes taking months before manifesting.  While not currently fatal, Pyra-miniaturitis appears to be a serious and chronic disease.

Symptoms include by are not limited to:

  • Symptoms:
    • Sleeplessness
    • Severe fatigue
    • An insatiable urge to acquire and assemble tokens and avatars of historical figures
    • The crafting and painting of tiny replicas of real-life objects such as ships, buildings, flora and fauna
    • An unyielding fascination with tactics and strategy that may lead to irrational decision making
    • Desire to engage in inane debates over military history and tactical strategies 
    • Compulsive desire to “rolls the bones” in games of chance.
    • Distractions at work, school or home
    • Increased desire to guess the distance between two objects without a measuring tape.
    • Arguments over the merits of metal vs the cost and efficacy of plastics as manufacturing materials.

This mysterious ailment demands our immediate attention. Captains and crews traversing Caribbean waters are urged to seek the cure without delay. Whether through consultations with local healers, exploration of uncharted islands, or collaboration with fellow seafarers, the solution must be found swiftly to prevent further suffering and loss of countless marriages and healthy retirement accounts. 

Together, we can stem the tide of this Pyra-Miniaturitis epidemic.
