Nik Wallenda, great-grandson of Karl Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas, has finally received permission to cross the Niagara Falls. On a tightrope:
After months of campaigning, Mr Wallenda was yesterday given permission by Canadian officials to attempt the death-defying stunt this summer. He had already secured support from the American side of the falls last year.
After getting the nod, guess what Nik said (reminiscent of another misty-eyed star):
I’m on top of the world. . .
Hmm, I suppose the other guy muttered: I am king of the world! It was rumored that one of the elder Wallendas was going to do the stunt first. If so, bookies were already chomping at the bit to name the feat Viagra Falls. . .
