for pete's sake

OK, I know it’s a different peat, but maybe it will count anyway…

It never ceases to amaze me what lengths people will go to for their 15 minutes, or if this guy is lucky 15 seconds, of fame.

Ananova’s Quirky Files gives details…

Pete's on a mission


A man named Pete is on a mission to find 1,999 other people with the same name to set a record.

Pete Trainor has set up a website to try and get 2,000 Petes together at the same place at the same time, reports the Sun.

He had originally planned to gather together 99 other Petes, but the goal posts were moved when a man named Mohammed broke the record by gathering together 1,500 men with the same name in Dubai.



At the risk of sounding extremely un-PC, but are they sure that Mohammed guy MEANT to get so many people of the same name together, or was it just daily prayer down at the mosque?

Should Pete manage to break the record, I wonder will he also go into the Guinness Book of Records for Most People With Too Much Time On Their Hands To Congregate In The Same Place…

No doubt about it, this Pete sounds like a twot. And as for Mohammed, if he'd tried the same stunt in Dublin rather than Dubai, you could have said 'fair play', but as it is it's a difficult as a blow job in a hoor house.

And I'm always amazed at how much peat looks like big blocks of hashish.

All hail people who use their spare time to do something other than moan about things that other people do!

Agreed. If it's stupid to do something random like collecting other people with the same name & potentially organising the mother of all p*ss ups, then what is it to sit online blogging & whining about it??? Doesn't make much sense to me. We salute your hypocrisy.
