A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I heard

Jimmy De Frenne, the man who sat on a toilet for 100 hours to break the world record despite not having anyone from Guinness Records observing:

"I wanted to spend a whole week sitting on a toilet bowl, but my body just didn’t want to go on so I decided it was best to stop. I was very tired and my legs hurt but I believe in my success and will try to make this record official. I am proud, but also a bit disappointed that I did not reach my goal. I am very grateful to the people who have helped me over the past few days. Everyone was very supportive, we did it as a team "

A tale I wrote

A double acrostic made up of 100 words

Ollie was playing with his mobile phone in the dojo.
Nathan was bouncing from foot to foot frantically breathing in,
Edging towards his lifelong rival and begging him to engage.
His hands were shaking with rage and desperate to punch.
Unaware, Ollie giggled as he searched Instagram for funny haiku.
Nathan seethed at the disrespect shown by his unworthy competition.
Ding, dinged the bell. Nathan slapped his chest and screamed.
Reading the room, Ollie put his phone away to hear
ENGAGE from the referee. Nathan charged full throttle at Ollie. 
Ding. Within one second Nathan had died. Ollie was good.
