    Two minutes' silence released as a charity single

    An unlikely charity single could reach number one next week: two minutes of silence


    The track, which is released on Monday as a digital download, is to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

    The organisers hope that it might top the charts next week, coinciding with Remembrance Sunday.
    You heard it right, folks. A song that consists of absolutely nothing but 2 minutes of silence is heading towards the top of the charts. Now before you make a statement about how stupid this is, consider what passes for music today, and then you can only realize that this makes perfect sense.

    To Simon and Garfunkel - Eat your hearts out.

    Finally, I have one more question. Will Marcel Marceau sue for copyright infringement?

    I wish I'd thought of this years ago. What product am I selling, you ask? Why, nothing at all, sir! That'll be $5.

    Profit margin of infinity %!

    Many bands would do well to play this song.

    My band has been playing it for years. It's called taking a break.

    Sounds like the Democrats finally found a theme song. Fitting too... pay good money and get nothing.

    You can always count on zimmer to make a pointless partisan hack statement.

    Since the proceeds of the single go to charity, this speaks to the kindness of many folks.

    So even after reading the article, I'm not exactly sure what this charity is supposed to do.
    Not very informative, if you ask me.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
