A FREE, all-day, outdoor Steampunk Festival on the Common, Waltham, Massachusetts - May 13, 2017
TESLA TOWER VS. PICKLE POWER!
With only hours remaining before the vote that will decide the future of Watch City’s power grid, both sides of the campaign are showing little signs of weakness.
At a press conference, Captain Von Arkham and Dr. Wilson said that, if chosen, their Tesla Tower system would be installed and operational within a week. Additionally, their Mark 1 Tesla Coil platform, designation “Mjolnir”, will be on display at next week’s festival and two demonstrations will be held on the common.
Immediately following this announcement, Solomon Sedgwick announced that he will be selling samples of his Super Pickles on sticks on festival day, assuring the press that they are still very much lethal, for the love of sanity do not eat the pickles safe to eat. He added that if the need to vomit arises after consuming one or more super pickles, one should try and avoid doing so on their skin, clothes, or any other combustible material.
When asked about her predicted outcome of the election, Queen Mercy Roulette stated “The good people of Watch City are intelligent and rational enough to know the difference between mad science and made up science. They will choose a future lit by wireless energy transmission, and not to fill the pockets of a robber-baron.” When asked the same question, Mayor Baron Von Lahey stated: “Of course the people will vote for me! I’m the Baron!”
