News, but not the serious kind
No running on the tightrope, kids!
Blog Guy, can you tell me some stuff about high wire?
You mean the 50th state, home to President Obama?
That is the worst pun I’ve ever read. I’m talking HIGH WIRE, like in the circus.
Well, I know that just PLAIN tightrope walking is for sissy weenies these days. These photos show guys competing in a high wire SPEED RACE.
Awesome! So that high wire speed racing is the new macho thing?
It is if you don’t think you can cut it in the MAIN event, Speed Racing Blindfolded on a Flaming Gas-Soaked Tightrope in a Lightning Storm Amid 2,500 Dive-Bombing Rabid Bats.
I see. Hey, what’s that thing left behind on the wire by the guy who dropped his bar?
I’m not sure. It could be some kind of adult diaper.
That’s what I was afraid of.
