Many of you remember The LG Report's $5 Challenge, wherein we dare people to do
The LG Report has decided to make the $5 Challenge a regular feature. We're not sure why we're highlighting the $5 Challenge in yellow, it's probably only a temporary thing, so don't get used to it. Not that you'd really get used to it anyway. If you're the kind of person who gets used to things being highlighted in yellow, please leave the blog immediately. Nah, we were only kidding, come back. We welcome all weirdoes.
The LG Report is on to its second $5 Challenge, and young Henry has stepped up to deliver.
We find it's easier to trick people into participating who are at our maturity level. Henry is 12 years old. Dannie was slightly buzzed. Normal people in their right mind don't generally participate in the $5 Challenge.
Here's a still photo of Henry shortly before the act:
He's a good kid, smart, witty, of good parentage. So what does he have to gain by participating in the $5 Challenge? $5 of course (try to keep up here people...) The video is below. Henry, being a budding showman, specifically noted how he played it up by dragging the cake down his face after the smashing. Please pay special attention to these subtleties. When Henry wins an Academy Award (tm) someday, you'll think back to this video clip:
Now here's the thing...the last LG Report posting, about dog farts, garnered zero comments (none, nada, nil, zilch.) Meanwhile, The LG Report is paying Henry $5 for a 20-second gig. That works out to $900 per hour. So, in a down economy, The LG Report is paying people $900 an hour; how's that for economic stimulation?
The U.S. government should be supporting The LG Report and encouraging people to click in. We wouldn't be surprised if President Obama himself called The LG Report's editorial offices to thank us for our efforts in rehabilitating the U.S. economy. Of course, the only glitch is that we don't have actual editorial offices. Someday maybe.
Being a major supporter of the U.S. economy as we are here at The LG Report, we're going to make this offer:
If we get 10 comments on this post, from 10 different people (sorry, duplicates don't count), we'll give young Henry an additional $10.
That works out to $2,700 per hour for his 20 seconds of work. How can anyone turn their nose up at stimulating the economy in such a major way?
With scores of Americans out of work, The LG Report is offering to pay $2,700 per hour (pro rated, of course; none of our $5 Challenges would actually take a full hour) to young Henry in exchange for people merely weighing in with their comments.
So start commenting folks and do your part as a responsible citizen to get our economy back on track!
Remember, the job you save may be your own. [We're not sure if there is actually such a job as "cake-in-face smasher" but you never know...]
Thanks for stopping by. We hope to see you back again soon. We'll see if we can trick little kids into doing more stupid stuff for $5. And please don't tell the cops about this, it's not against the law. By clicking onto The LG Report, you tacitly agree never to go to the cops. Thanks again and happy new year!
