Tell Us Your Wackiest Record Nominee!

What's the zaniest Guinness World Record you've ever encountered? Clearly, a mass dog wedding is hardly the first unusual GWR category of all time.

In 100 words or less, describe the most bizarre, strange, silly or otherwise wacked-out GWR that you've come across. The most creative response wins two dining out booklets (total value: $24), as part of DTOP's Thursday Night Out program through the end of August.

Deadline: Noon on Monday, August 18, 2008. (All submissions should be made to and by submitting your story, you are giving permission for us to use it in any promotion, including this blog.)

For me, the most bizarre (and somewhat creepy) record was the dude from India who had the longest fingernails. Funny thing about GWR---they tell you what the record is, but not always "why?"

I mean, excuse the pun, but just what was that guy's point? He may well have inspired Lee Redmond of Utah. She hasn't trimmed her nails since 1979.
