How many Smoots is that?
Today's making with the funny stuff comes straight from the 'we couldn't even make this stuff up if we tried' file.

Apparently, the kid who let himself be rolled end over end over the Mass Ave Bridge grew up to become Chairman of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and President of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
