Rephrasing a Common Phrase

While watching television today I was rudely interrupted by a sign that said “we are experiencing technical difficulties, please stand by” and that made me think “what kind of technical difficulties?” I know that sounds stupid but it’s true. Are they really so bad that you can’t continue showing what I was watching but you can broadcast a sign telling me somethings wrong? Obviously not enough is wrong. I want to see honest signs. Instead of “technical difficulties” I want to see “sorry the guy running the video dropped hot coffee on his lap and is running around screaming. We’d fix the video but we don’t know how to. Once his balls cool down we’ll have you watching whatever you were watching as soon as we can.” Or perhaps “we really don’t know what’s wrong so go get a nice cool drink and maybe have a pee and we’ll let you know when we’re ready to start up again”
