The wheels came off a San Jose-bound bus yesterday, leading to what local authorities termed a “bus event.” Authorities settled on “bus event” after debating the differences between “skid,” “collision,” and “crash,” with the debate coming down to whether or not a bus striking those yellow, water-filled garbage cans constitutes a crash, when the cans were put there to prevent bus crashes, not abet them. “A can designed to prevent crashes, that does its job exactly as intended, must thereby have prevented a crash,” local ethics professors D.N. Mu said. “No bus crashed here, even though over forty passengers died on impact.”
