Considering it's Alabama, they probably should anyway.

It's weird that there was a short period of time there after Perestroika and before 9/11 where that warning wouldn't have induced panic.

Since it was Alabama, the "Civil Emergency" message could have been, "The liberals are trying to replace Trump with another black man!"

He tried to warn us about Roy Moore, but we didn't listen.

Really, when is an emergency ever civil?

Pick your sons, pick your daughters too, from the bottom of a long glass tube.

Take your daughters to the Roy Moore Refuge Center at the Sunnydale Mall.  There, they will be cared for, sorted and the good looking ones given Victoria's Secret Pink dollars to spend as they please.  Parents must sign a Notice to Date form

Checking to make sure the system works before the "state of emergency - remain in your homes" broadcasts on the 12th?

Please don't forget to bring your yearbooks from school for a free autograph signing by Mr. Moore. He'll be happy to sign them for you.
 
OOF

Welcome to flight 53. This is your captain speaking. Our destination is Mobile Alabama. There is no need to panic.

Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Republicanism.

Lock up your daughters and horses
Of course it's hard to have intercourse over four sets of corsets

Did anyone even notice?  The Cold War tainted me on the emergency system.  The moment that horrible noise starts, I ignore the tv, sometimes walk out of the room.  They never use it for weather warnings, weather reporters simply take over the channel.

You can lock up your daughters, but it's your lupines or your lives.

Also, lock up your wife, lock up your back door, and run for your life.

Apparently, watching out for Roy Moore is a given in Alabama since the 1980s.

Moore like "Imminent danger of electing someone who ain't a Good 'ol Boy."  Can't have that.  Might not keep the darkies and wimmenfolk in their place.  Might not protect all the bootstrappy multimillionaires at the expense of hard-working fam- I mean protect the hard-working families, yeah, that's what I meant...
