Temporarily Stairs

"I like an escalator, because an escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You'll never see an 'Escalator Out of Order' sign, only 'Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.'" -- Mitch Hedberg
I flew home from San Fransisco earlier today and in the airports I kept encountering escalators that weren't moving. No reason given, I'm not sure if they were broken down or what.

Anyway, it made me think of Mitch Herberg's bit.
