Domino Competitor Shot After Knocking Down 23,000 Tiles

USA Today is reporting in Denmark:

In a bid to break the Guinness World Record, there was an intruder who slipped in and sabotaged the effort. The intruder knocked down 23,000 tiles which was a set back for the contestants in planning a 4,321,000 domino fall. Each falling in succession would break their own previous Guinness Record.

Unfortunately, an intruder spoiled their attempt, and continued to pose a danger in knocking down more tiles. The contestants, fearful, called in a hit man, to deal with the intruder who was scared and hiding in a corner. The hit man promptly shot the intruder.

The hit man was actually an exterminator, and the intruder was a sparrow that made its way in through a window.

good of you to pay attention to these amazing actions:

Please help in letting sbs broadcasting know we don't like the fact that an animal (Sparrow) was killed so it would not jeopardy the bloody domino d day show on friday.

This Domino D day link, links to a condoleance register for the sparrow.. If we leave it on, and a lot of people copy this link, then maybe we can get it right up there in the google index if people search for Domino D day.

I know this is spam, but if, after reading this story you don't want to act in this thing, feel free to remove this post.

Thank you!

In Britain we have a shortage of Sparrows, once a very common bird. Has your exterminator been over here?

Captain Jack Sparrow had better watch out!

Thank you for your comments. I am sure SBS is going to regret the murder of the sparrow. Many I am sure will join in effort of the condolence letter, and Prydwen do you think that sparrow exterminator may be wanted by Interpol?

That was hilarious...except my computer screen was advanced enough and I really did think the "hit man" was some psycho at first. :-)
