News, but not the serious kind
Hurry up Earl, it’s Headstand Night!
My regular readers know that for some time I’ve been gathering information for a doctoral thesis.
It is to be an objective, scientific look at how sad and meaningless life is in places where they don’t have cable television, Blu-ray, TiVo and other entertainment necessities.
Now, at a training camp in China, I may have hit rock bottom. The recruits there entertain each other with headstands. I am not making this up.
Excuse me for interrupting, Blog Guy, but why is Headstand Night more disturbing to you than a singing dingo?
Oh. Did I mention that many of the recruits are actually APPLAUDING?
