Are these people proud of themselves?
An unusual Halloween charity race has set a world record.
The organizers of the Denver Gorilla Run say the 1,061 people ran 3.5 miles dressed as gorillas. That was enough to set a Guinness World Record for the most people in gorilla costume.
The annual Halloween race raises money for the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. The fund raises money to continue the work of Dian Fossey, whose research was the subject of the movie “Gorillas in the Mist.”
I actually talked about this with a buddy of mine the other day. Did you know that people all across this country spend years, yes YEARS trying to accomplish the dumbest world records you can imagine?
Like these people work way harder than they would at their jobs just trying to make the biggest rubber band ball, or most holes in testicles. You know, fun stuff like that?
How about focusing energy on stuff that might be a little more important? At least it was only on Halloween.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
