“There has been growing demand by our employees to have two weekends in a week; the first one to just untangle the earphone and the second one to use them or to take a break after achieving the tiring feat,” an HR manager of a leading IT company confirmed to Faking News.

While scientists are still trying to figure out how exactly an earphone manages to get itself into such a position of virtually no return, International Olympic Committee (IOC) is contemplating to include it as a sport in Olympics from next year. The only glitch, as per an IOC source, is that the official duration of Olympics is no more than 16 days.
