I blame Slartibartfast.

But, and this important: did they pine?

Two workers, hanging in a basket a kilometer from one side of a fjord, repairing something? Two questions: how wide was the fjord, and what the hell were they repairing? Air? The cable? A flying parrot?

...and yet, no one bothers to check the tisket and tasket to see if those people need help too!

If only they'd brought their towels, which could have been deployed as emergency parachutes.

They need a ladder, perhaps made of some really good wood. I'm sure they have some in Norway.

OK, fine. Went back and read TFA again. Power workers, so some sort of power transmission line thing, probably those spacers between the paired cables? Maybe they used one of those trolley-like things to ride the cable out to wherever and couldn't haul themselves back? Maybe someone didn't tie off the other end of the rope?

Sentient

Or to hitch a ride on a large passin' bird (not a parrot) and cover its eyes to persuade it to land?

They passed the time reading Volgon poetry out loud.

*Vogon... I don't know how that L slipped in there. It was uncomfortable for a bit.

INthe event the rescu fails, the workers would just like to say "So long, and thanks for all the fish".

None of the above.

They were installing a sign that will read "We apologize for the inconvenience."

Ole and Sven?

Yellow?

I was Curious.


/No, that was Sweden.
//D'øh!

Were they asked to hurry up or risk being late?
/"late" as in "the late Dentarthurdent"
