UnNews:Man Killed By Hogging Karaoke
5 December 2008
Asia - A man has died from exhaustion, after refusing to stop singing at a karaoke bar in Asia. Reports from the scene, say that he sung for a marathon 52 hours, without taking a single break, for food, drink, or even to use the toilet.
An eyewitness said “By the time he had done 48 hours straight, he was beginning to flag. His earlier rendition of How Soon is Now was spot on, arguably better than the original, but by the time he got to the Ghostbusters theme the second time, he was definitely flagging. It sounded like he was screaming Goat Busters, instead of the more traditional lyric. Nevertheless it is a tragedy, and we have slaughtered a young Boer kid, as a sign of respect”.
