Agree!

All the years I grew up there, never heard such a thing. Have no clue when or why they would do that.

When I first read the headline, thought would be some other country. But nope! Good old home full of dumbshits.

Are there no easier record to beat, say, number of people saying the letter A while hopping on one foot? But no, they go with number of fools setting themselves on fire. Brilliant.

Give a man a match, and he'll stay warm for an instant.

Or, you set a man on fire, and you stay warm for the rest of your life...

Say now, go easy on us. We tend to be flaming!
Have to admit, not everyone can catch a river on fire. But we, the tough of the country, can. We're cool/hot like that!

Plus...we got the Rock Hall of Fame!~

Oh yeah, Cleveland's got talent...

They also have a miserable NFL team. At least the Philadelphia Eagles have been in a couple of Super Bowls. But I gotta admit, the Indians and Cavaliers are pretty good.

Please, why bring up the Browns. How sad is that? Ya know.
I mean...have one bad year..okay...but really? Always?

They got a really nice stadium built for them for that blow-job playing they do.

Thank the Gods, I am not into sports.

Oh yeah, if things can be made worse, I now live in damn Knoxville. Am sure you've heard about the the fellow that bought bought the Browns. I just put my head in the sand and act like I know nothing.
