In space, your vote can't be heard...

In a rather bold experiment earlier this week, an assortment of roughly half-a-million Ohio voters fit themselves inside a vacuum chamber in order to not have their voices be heard.

The event's organizer, Vespa Sillyrabbit (who goes by the name "Whispers"), silently mouthed this statement for the group:

We, who choose to remain voiceless, believe in the power of our voicelessness. We refuse to be heard and to prove it we are sequestering ourselves inside this air-tight vacuum chamber.

Said one self-disenfranchised man after the event: "Whew, it was pretty tight in there! It seemed like a cool idea at the time. But I forgot that you also can't breathe in a vacuum, which sucks."

Of note, the event also smashed the previous Guinness record for number of Ohioans inside a vacuum chamber by more than 400,000.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
