1. There is something very wrong with little Timmy.

Pitch-dropped babies = sign of the beast.

2. This alarm clock is not joking around.

This is not a drill. Don't even TRY to hit "snooze."

3. The real question is: UFO or lawn mower?

It's hovering there, waiting for you to be launched into space.

4. A siren isn't too scary, actually.


5. Which is a nice break, because would you want to get on this subway?

You know what happens when you get on this train. DON'T DO IT.

6. Pitch-dropped dogs sound so sad.

Hug your dog, people.

7. Same goes for pitch-dropped cats.

Cat in distress.

8. Car traffic sounds like boat traffic.

If only there was a way to make your car windows pitch-drop everything.

9. It's actually kind of funny, isn't it, how weird this pitch-dropped world is.

Nope! Just kidding, it's terrifying.

10. But congratulations on getting through it anyway.

Have a nice, weird, pitch-dropped life.
