Turfed from the Tube

If you’ve travelled on London’s Tube, you’ll know the voice of Emma Clark, who pleasantly asks passengers to “mind the gap” — among other typical public transit messages. But now she has been fired by her employer, the London Underground, for creating spoof messages that have some fun with American tourists and  local blokes too.

Clark actually maintains a blog, called “Mind the Gap”,  which is currently down due to massive volumes of Internet traffic since her firing — though her MP3s have been posted elsewhere to satiate the worldwide demand for her playful takes on standard subway announcements.
