Mr. Driller congratulates Chilean miner rescue

In case you%26rsquo;ve been cryogenically frozen since July,the Chilean miners trapped underground for the last two months have just been liberated from their dirt prison! In that time the whole world rallied behind the unfortunate souls held captive by the Earth itself, so not only is it great news that all 33 men have emerged, initial hospital examinations show little to no sign of long term damage and some of them are even leaving the hospital as we speak to go about their daily lives.
