Records are meant to be broken but there are some records that so eccentric that they truly pose a challenge to everybody to break them. There are records that downright hilarious and then there are some records that are so gross in nature that they are better left unbroken!
Check out some of the most bizarre world records that made way into the record books.
1. Bikini Clad Women
3090 women gathered on the beach of Huludao,China to set the record for world’s biggest photo shoot of bikini clad women. Ladies aged four to sixty-nine participated in this event which required over 40,000 volunteers for organisation!
2. Bertie: The World’s Fastest Tortoise
Yes! You read it right, the words ‘world’s fastest tortoise’ are in the same sentence. Who would have thought about such a thing. Props to the organizers who came up with the idea of a tortoise race! The record was created by one Bertie, who managed to run at a remarkable speed of 0.28 m/s (0.92 ft/sec), which more than two times faster than the tortoise who held the previous record.
3. Simpsons On His Mind, Heart And Arm
This is one weird record for all the legit reasons. This is surely a case of fandom gone too far! Lee Weir, a 27-year-old from New Zealand inked over 41 images of Homer Simpson on his left arm. Homer can be seen as the Hulk, Grim Reaper, a skeleton and a lot more. What a fan!
4. Fandom for Pizza
Who doesn’t love pizza, it is one of Italy’s greatest gifts to the world. Wait till you read about Brian Dwyer’s world record of pizza. No, he did not make one by eating a lot of it, but the guy collected the highest number of pizza memorabilia with a whopping 561 items in his possession. Our pizza related items usually end up in a bin.
5. Surfing Dog
This dog is a legit bad*ss, she can not only run, bark and be all adorable and awesome like a normal dog. This one special dog can also surf! Look at her surf her way into creating a world record with 60 meters of total distance surfed. Most humans can’t even surf half of that.
6. The King Of All Burps
Paul ‘the burper king’ Hun hails from the UK. This guy set up a record that only a person with less than zero sense of public censure can break- the loudest burp ever, at 109.9 decibels! What did this guy do to make that happen?
7. World’s Heaviest Twins
Billy and Benny McCrarys hold the record of being the heaviest pair of twins in the whole world. Billy weighs a staggering 337 kg while Benny weighs 328 kg. Both had a massive waistline that measured at 213 cm (84 Inches) each. It would be advisable not to attempt breaking this record.
