Kurt-Ripping a Phonebook in Half

There are certain things that my husband does that makes my heart go pitter-patter. What you are about to witness is one of them.
For the easily amused. Kurt's first attempt at ripping a phonebook in half.
(Sorry, there's no sound-if you could hear sound you would be just as amused by the noise and the sounds that were made during the 30 seconds of filming. Also, sorry about the lighting....)

Take One

Take Two

We have only ever witnessed two other people ripping a phonebook in half. Kurt's mom and Paul Weimer. We're not talking about the wimpy 1 inch Rexburg phonebook, we're talking 3 inches of Salt Lake City yellow pages. Ever tried it?

Rachel said...

kurts mom?!?!

you guys so rock!

khepworth said...

Nat: He is a stud!

Rachel: Yes, we have it documented.

Jon and Melissa said...

Ha too funny. I remember Jon once telling me about Paul-now I guess we will just have to add Kurt and his Mom to the list. Hey Jon's brother Matt is trying to help me get my pictures to enlarge. First thing we tried was changing the template. I thought it worked, but only the first four pictures enlarge. Better than nothing I suppose. I will let you know if I learn more.

Oooooooohhhhhhh. I am impressed! I think I shall have Tyler try it. Why not?

Kurt's Mom can do it because she had so many kids and still has a lot of pent up frustration inside. ha ha

Okay so it has been about 7 years since I have even talked to you guys but that doesn't at all surprise me about Kurt . . . he is such a kid at heart! Kurt always has a way of making people laugh and I will never forget taking Math with him at RICKS!

And I can't believe you guys have 3 boys . . . I think when I left good 'ol Rexburg you were pregnant with your first!

Aaah the days of you guys telling us girls what to do in the house next door!

Email me your address (catherinemtaylor@gmail.com) and I will invite you to our family blog!

Kade told me to let you guys know that kurts mom can only rip a phone book in half because she is Canadian, which he also thinks might be a clue to Weimer's heritage.:> to test his theory we need Thomas to give it a try.

khepworth said...

Catherine: Holy Smokes! We were wandering what happened to you. I'll be emailing you.

Walter: Good observation. Thomas you up for the challenge? You know, if Thomas proves himself, it could also be an indicator that Americans are wimpier than Canadians....Just a theory.

Melissa: Have you mastered the art of enlarging your pics. yet? Any new info.

Kurtosis said...

Thomas has girl arms and likes men. He could never do it.

cort said...

1 yellow pages phone book is pretty easy....the first time i did it was when I was in 4th grade, then I moved up to 2 of them at the same time. That is a little more difficult.

Who is Kurtosis on your comments? Is that Kurt in the costume? Hilarious!!!

The Haley Family said...

that is hilarious! Is it a Rexburg specialty?? Maybe I should have Matt try it...

the merriest said...

oh gag me. don't give thomas the glory! and don't give him the opp to take kurt's fame here...18 comments?! ya, leave kurt with his bragging rights!

and canadians? come on. the ONLY cool thing about canada is that they have better slurpees than us (really they are). oh and their road signs are far superior.

:) just kidding. thomas and canadians are cool. and you know tom's-a would half that thing in point 5 so i'm serious about letting kurt retain his manhood here.

Kurtosis said...

If Thomas were to try it the only thing that would be torn in 0.5 is his pride and ego! Holla!

Anonymous said...

Uhhh....Hate to do this, but the truth is that I trained Kurt on how to develop the strength to achieve such a miraculous feat! And I learned it from Birch Weimer, my father who raised me since being abandoned by birth..

So the real question is...when did Birch teach Kurts Mom and does that somehow make myself and Kurt related?

Also, Canadian has nothing to do with it. Canadians should tear themselves in half. Now thats a party gag i'd like to see!

I learned how to do this on my mission. So when I got home and was reporting to the ward I called my brother up who returned just weeks before I did. I gave him the small phone book and took the big one. He could not do it so I looked pretty good.

khepworth said...

Britt: Kurtosis=Kurt. And no it is not him in the costume.

Anon: Weimer with T's and Kurt related.......hmmmmmmm........

Steph: Did you by chance goto Canada on your mission? And you tore a phone book in half in front of the congregation?! That would have been entertaining.
