St. Louis – The Bennington family recently went big game hunting in Africa because hunting deer with ticks was no longer safe said Dan Bennington (father). When they arrived in Africa, they immediately were bored.
“When we landed, our chauffeur took us to the private hunting ground where we saw countless wild animals….it was completely boring” said Steven Bennington (son).
The Bennington family then went into their private rooms which were decorated with artifacts of the tribes around them and with an obscure amount of animal heads mounted on the walls but they were still completely bored.
“Do they even have wi-fi or satellite TV?” said Kim Bennington (mother).
It took only a half hour later when the camp ground leader took the family out big game hunting. The Bennington family had such high hopes but were less than amused by the animal tracker taking them to kill a lion.
“First off, the animal tracker guy didn’t even speak English and secondly, who wants to kill a lion? Talk about boring, I could have just watched a YouTube video.” said Dan Bennington.
"I thought we were going to hunt a Leprechaun or a Megalodon" said Kim Bennington.
The Bennington family didn’t have to wait for long though, a lion emerged from the grass field and they were instructed to go after it. Steven Bennington quickly shot it and then proceeded to get out of the safety vehicle.
“I was bored and I had like a genius idea and that was to prop up against this dead lion like a bean bag and just play some games on my IPad….maybe even get a nice tan” said Steven Bennington.
“I couldn’t believe it, our son shouldn’t just be going to a trade school, he should reach even higher with brilliant ideas like this. Who would have known lions are best utilized as comfy make shift bean bags” said Kim Bennington.
“Our son saved the whole entire trip from boredom by doing this, god could you have imagined just how boring this trip could have been without that brilliant idea” said Dan Bennington.
The animal tracker repeatedly told them to get back into the safety vehicle but the Bennington family refused as day turned into night. Fearing his own safety, the animal tracker returned back to his camp lodge.
The next morning the entire Bennington family was found to be murdered by a pack of hyenas. The good news is, the private hunting ground gained complimentary IPads for the next family that is bored. The bad news is, this story was put together by all the social media posts from the Bennington family. Further proving, modern societies addiction to social media and electronic devices are killing our culture. For instance, this is Steven Bennington's last social media post before his death.
“Yo this Hyena is eating me alive, taking forever, soooooo bored #YOLO” - Steven Bennington.
