>> i believe that.

>> we don't recommend you nap this afternoon on the park benches. this comes from youtube, they're trying to start a phenomenon called clocking whereby you stand and make your arms into the hands of a clock. and post it to youtube, the best one will get millions of views, surely not real. and finally --

>> you also get in trouble when you do 6:30.
