    Competitive air guitar? Really, that's a thing? :confused:

    Do the Kardashians play air guitar? That would be the next step in meaningful activities.
     
  6. Good lord, look at the crowd.

    I was hoping he would at least have some idea what he was doing and what guitar playing looks like... guess not.

    Proud to be an America and so does you.

    Why are tere so many people?
    Why is there a worldwide competition for that?
    What's the prize for 1st?

    1st Prize - a lobotomy.

    Although the competitors have probably already had one, so no gain there.

    Years back an utterly adorable asian girl won this and in interviews she said she worked hard studying tabs to move her fingers properly like she was actually playing the real notes.

    Turned out that wasn't what won it for her. It was that she showed her panties.
