Irene Lucas, Chief Coach of South Tyneside Councils Synchronised Nodding Team, today described herself as “elated” when the Team slashed the previous 7 minute world record for committee meetings, turning in a massive 3 minute affair for this weeks Cabinet get together.
“The Team have been training hard all month to achieve this world record time” said Lucas. “They have been nodding all week purely with this meeting in mind. Poor old Team Captain Councillor WAGGGOTTT’s head nearly fell off after a particular hard training session, such was his desire to say yes to anything and everything”.
With the Olympics coming up, the Team have returned once again to training. Not because of the tradition, the prestige or the sporting ethos, but because there’s a lot of money to be made.
