Quote of the day: “You can tell your grandchildren that you were here at the first World Burping Championships.” A tad dramatic? Well, some will say that this is a more impressive performance than Matt Cain’s perfect game. Ladies and gentlemen … OK, just gentlemen … an 18.1-second burp.
Sentence of the day: The event was sanctioned by the World Burping Federation.
That’s Tim Janus, who became the first-ever world burping champion at Hudson Station Bar in New York City, and thus will have beautiful women pounding on his front door for an entire year. We just hope he lets them out.
