Since it's now not worth anything, can I light the top match?

My grandpa told me that a little planning can make a big difference. I guess he didn't get the same talk from his grandpa.

Is there a record for an Eiffel Tower replica built out of boogers and nose hair ? Asking for a friend.

Who could have imagined that the entire effort would have turned into a complete waste of time? Oh the hypocrisy!

So, Guinness is now an English beer and the company is based in London? I must have been imagining things when I thought I rode past the brewery in Dublin, Ireland. Thanks for the solid reporting, NBC News!

So, now he has the record for building an Eiffel Tower with non-commercially available matchsticks.

Poulet Surprise

The French and English never did get along.

Breaking news: Guinness changed its mind.
