Yanny or Laurel?

This post is SO STUPID. That said, watch before reading another word-

Started the vehicle to make my way home from work. CBC Radio filled the air, first thing I heard was “Laurel”. Drove off without a second thought. Radio announcer said “we’ll play it one more time. What do you hear, Yanny or Laurel?” Yanny? Are you nuts? What’s wrong with you people and why does it matter to CBC?

Apparently “Yanny or Laurel” deserves mention for trending above all other social media froth. For the next five minutes, rush hour traffic stuttered belligerently to the cadence of Yanny or Laurel uncertainty. Blah, blah, blah. Half the newsroom heard Yanny, the other Laurel. I wanted to scream “nobody cares!” Pretty sure I flipped off the nincompoop who cut in front of me. I need a vacation. Sigh.

  1. Okaaaaayyyy … I’ll play along. But before I tell you what I heard be warned, I only listened part of the way and presumed the rest was … etc etc etc etc etc blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah etc etc etc etc etc

    And this may qualify me for some manner of booby prize but I heard (SFX: Drum roll, please) “Laurel”

  2. My ears must be broken, because I didn’t hear either. I heard “Yeary” or “Yarry”.

    Still it makes you wonder who decided to produce that as “content” in the first place?
