Hotel worker causes toxic spill scare, evacuation


The beautiful suburban New York Garden City Hotel, where we've held our sales meetings the past couple of years, got a surprise when "a former employee ran into a ballroom lobby wearing a gas mask, spilled a suspicious yellow liquid on the floor and subsequently fled." Though it turned out to be a safe "protein-based food product," 150 people still had to be quarantined. Great, another disgruntled employee on the loose, though I'm guessing he's an ex-employee about now.

But what I really want to know is: What the heck kind of a "protein-based food product" smells like vomit and/or ammonia? On second thought, maybe I don't want to know.
