Going Viral #8


The BBC interviewer held the microphone on its boom as he interviewed the couple in Trafalgar Square. He was using it to record them... but he was also using it as a weapon, much as a lion-tamer might use a chair to protect himself from his mighty, magnificent foe.

But this couple weren’t magnificent; they were insane! They’d come to London, to one of its most visited locations, merely “To see how empty it was.” And then they would go home.

In Roman times, the microphone would have been a sword... and after the interview... thumbs down from Caesar.

    It was on the 6o’clock News on BBC1 tonight Frenchie. It was hard to believe! The reporter was seeming to keep them at bay with his boom mike. It would have been funny if they’d not been so serious. Idiots!
