We here at CATV Channel 2 have been made aware of an infestation of interesting creatures on our property. Furthermore, we have also been told that CATV is a "Poke Stop"...whatever that is.
We've had reported sightings of things called Jinx, Squirtle, and something called MagiCarp...(It must be delicious). Please stop by and help us rid ourselves of these creatures, feel free to "catch em all"(Yeah, we went there)
Any Pokemon you catch are yours to keep, all we ask is stop inside for a tour of our studio! Maybe you can learn how to make a show about these so called "monsters"! Just beware of the Krabby in the bathroom...
