Uber be damned: Clickhole's Whysk is a transportation app that uses monks instead of cars

A religious experience

The ride-sharing industry is already crowded with Uber, Lyft, and their lesser-known competitors. But a new startup may yet defrock them all: Whysk offers personalized, on-demand transportation by a community of silent monks. Simply bang on a miniature gong to hail them to your door. With Uber valued at a reported $17 billion, we can only imagine the kinds of unholy sums Whysk could attain. It almost seems too innovative to be true. Check out the company's promising first advertisement here.
