Longfellow’s Wayside Inn

Please rate this video for its boredom content, always using "Wooden Bridge Inspection" as your gold standard.

Add some extra points for the irritating traffic and nature noises in the background, and the wandering eyes of the narrators.

I found it fascinating that the first guy left the screen at 0:50 and came back 29 seconds later, having shaved and changed his shirt. That takes talent!

The wind noise on the microphone was so annoying I couldn't get a good read on the boredomometer.

I give this video four yawns (stars are too exciting). Maybe the narrators would get more respect if they took a few leaves from Longfellow when they wrote their spiels--he actually got people READING poetry.

How can you say it's boring?! It namechecks both our most exciting president, Calvin Coolidge, AND a Jennifer Garner movie!

I [heart] Calvin Coolidge!

It was unrelentingly boring, but at least it wasn't interminably long. (like the wooden bridge thing) Yes, the wind and background noises sucked too.

I hope these guys weren't auditioning for State Park Ranger guide jobs. Those folks are actually interesting. Three yawns.

I would rather have heard a Methodist preacher give a sermon in some foreign language. This reminds me of freshman History class.
