News, but not the serious kind
I scream, you scream, we all scream for lira?
Blog Guy, it’s a rainy Monday. Give me something really stupid. I don’t want to learn a single thing.
Hey! My sacred vow to my readers is that nobody will EVER learn anything here. Check out this 38-second video of people screaming at a Thai resort town, as competitors try to break a world record.
That does sound stupid. I bet the winner was pretty loud, right?
I don’t know. There’s no narration, so I don’t know if we even have the winner on video.
Oh. I see. But still, if they broke a world record and all…
They didn’t come close to beating the record.
Hey, toss me something here, Blog Guy! What did the winner get?
Our item says 100 million Turkish lira.
Stop. Time-out. You said this was in Thailand. Why on EARTH would the winner get a prize in Turkish lira?
Aha! So now you DO want to learn something? Well not here, Mister. Maybe you should just move right along to our FaithWorld blog!
