Top Texter

She’s only 14 but she’s the fastest texter in Canada. Tori Macken won herself a trip to Toronto and a chance at $25,000 in cash and prizes in just 6.1 seconds, texting the phrase “Brng it on. I can do it” from her cell phone.


Discovered while hanging out in a mall, Tori’s one of nine contestants across Canada who will compete in the 2nd annual LG Canadian Texting Championship finals – and she’s the youngest of them all.


Tory says her lightning-fast fingers and speedy texting talent comes from sending about 50 texts a day to her friends. In fact, she says she texts her friends more than she calls them because, to her, it’s easier.


If she wins and becomes the champion, Tori says she already knows what message she’s going to text to her friends: “I’m the fastest texter in Canada :)”

The "world's funniest joke" is a term used by Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire in 2002 to summarize one of the results of his research. For his experiment, named LaughLab, he created a website where people could rate and submit jokes. Purposes of the research included discovering the joke that had the widest appeal and understanding among different cultures, demographics and countries.The History Channel eventually hosted a special on the subject The winning joke, which was later found to be based on a 1951 Goon Show sketch by Spike Milligan, was submitted by Gurpal Gosal of Manchester: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?".
