The exit to top will abort the current handler and all of the handlers 
that called the current one (basically everything that's currently 
running.) Pending messages aren't running yet so there is nothing to 
abort there. As soon as the abort happens, the waiting pending message 
fires and the showRandoms handler starts up again.
