On Saturday [at the Camden Palace Hotel, Cork] we attempted to beat the World Record of most bodies painted, the record is currently 264 and we had 316 people there! All we need now is to get the Guinness World Record to sign off and Ireland will be the new record holders!

I’m a long time reader with a question.I’m living in Rwanda for the summer with 24 classmates from a masters program based in Trinity and UCD, we are all out here doing field research with different organisations. One evening during a long wait for dinner we decided to have a go at a world record. We bought 5100 toothpicks from a shop near by and tried to put them all in my beard. We succeeded.

What I want to know is, is this a world record? Obviously for it to be official Guinness or whoever will need to observe it, but has 5100 toothpicks been beaten already? Do I need to keep growing the beard to fit more in? Hopefully your readers can help tell me what I need to do to make this a record.

Anyone?

Last week, New York restaurant Serendipity3 set a Guinness World Record for the priciest burger with this gourmet $295 NOMfest, described by PRNewswire as:

…a mix of Japanese Wagyu beef infused with 10-herb white truffle butter, seasoned with Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt, topped with cheddar cheese — hand-formed by the famous cheesemaker James Montgomery in Somerset, England, and cave-aged for 18 months — shaved black truffles, a fried quail egg and served on a white truffle-buttered Campagna Roll, which is topped with a blini, creme fraiche, and Paramout Caviar’s exclusive Kaluga caviar — a beautiful golden caviar with a buttery, nutty taste and large pearls from the Huso Dauricus farm raised in Quzhou, China. The finishing touch to this incredible burger is a solid gold “Fleur de Lis” toothpick encrusted with diamonds and designed by world-renowned jeweler.’

48 hour notice is required when ordering the burger, profits from which are donated to the Bowery Mission a NY charity that feeds homeless people.
