Felt something, thought it was gas from the lunch at Donahue's.

It's just my two cents, but I was in VT during the earthquake (didn't feel anything there), so I was actually interested in what happened in Watertown, if anything. So the comment about gas from eating somewhere struck me as uninformative, tasteless, and a gratuitous potshot at a local business. I like humorous comments, but I think they should be informative, in good taste, and fair--or at least have one of these qualities.
