Broken “modem” causes major Canadian internet outage

Canadian web surfers faced blank screens last night, when an internet outage plunged the nation into the cybervoid.

The outage occurred after a malfunction at McGuinn Data, the nation’s service provider. Said owner, Sam McGuinn, “It looks as if the cleaner knocked the power switch by mistake, turning off the modem.”

The modem, a kind of computer telephone device, was turned on again this morning, restoring Canada’s information highway to the world.
