The Truth about Goats

Chinese bridge made from iPhone glass

Beijing officials have been left red-faced by the discovery that their 430m-long bridge, costing $3.4m, was constructed without a screen protector. Having used iPhone glass technology, the Zhangjiajie bridge is to be closed for repairs or until the end of its 36 month contract – whichever is longer.

Like an iPhone the bridge was designed to withstand hammer blows and extreme weights; and like an iPhone it shatters in a stiff breeze or if a butterfly ‘looks funny at it’. The bridge can accommodate 8,000 visitors a day but cannot withstand one teenage girl spamming emojis on Instagram with a manicured finger. Although technically still workable, the bridge is covered in ugly cracks and is just embarrassing to take out at parties.

Chinese officials were frustrated at having recently upgraded their Nokia brick-bridge to a smart-screen, scratch-resistant waste of money. Unfortunately to cut costs they had not taken out AppleCare+, leaving only one option but to trade-in their broken bridge or send it off to ‘Zhang Wei’s budget repair shop & laundry’.

The glass-bottomed bridge was heralded as the biggest transparent walk of death, since Donald Trump’s march to the Whitehouse. Said one visitor: ‘It’s typical – the bridge was barely out of the box and then I heard this crack. I hoped it was my leg breaking, at least that could be mended’.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
