AUGUST 17–A 10-year-old Orlando boy took Gold in the Fastest Loss of a CamelBak Water Bottle event, setting a new world record for losing TWO brand-new BPA-free bottles by the THIRD day of school.
Asked about this amazing feat, the 10-year-old had this to say: “Mom, I swear I put them in my backpack!”
Picking through the back-to-school remains at Target, the boy’s mother could not be prouder. “He’s been training his whole life for this,” she said, as she plucked two replacement bottles with Hello Kitty motifs from the leftovers bin. “He’s lost just about everything we’ve ever given him: shoes … sweaters … jackets … lunch boxes … my iPhone. This dual water-bottle loss was a personal best. But we’re sure he’s destined for even bigger things, like losing his backpack with all his homework. Now THAT would be special.”
