WE’VE BEEN SWEPT, BROOM CHALLENGE IS NOTHING SPECIAL!
Written by Ballzer on February 12, 2020
If your feed’s been full of boring old broomsticks this week, you’re not alone. The broomstick challenge hit us hard and seemed to have started with a viral tweet on Monday that claimed “NASA said today was the only day a broom can stand up on its own because of the gravitational pull!” Turns out, we’ve just never tried to stand a broom up on it’s own.. because, why would we? If you missed it, you can try again any other day…
