I first considered phoning a construction company and asking them to send a portable crane over.

OUR EARTH: FLAT, HOLLOW OR DELUDED?

I always thought, when I heard anyone mention the Flat Earth Society, that it was put together by a group of people with a great sense of humour. A practical joke. Just for fun.
