It Is Just So Stupid

I think I have found the stupidest record ever allowed in the Guinness Book of Records. I have made it know in no uncertain terms that I think most records attempted by people are frivolous and harmful not only to themselves but the civilization we are all trying to establish out here. I hate the big food records the most but today I saw this picture and we have a new contender for most idiotic use of one's time to get into the record book.

First of all you are not really 'WEARING' the party hat in the manner it was intended to be worn - ON YOUR HEAD! Secondly, you have practically achieved the easiest record ever. Some kid in India could beat that number tomorrow and then his buddy can break that record by adding just one more hat.

It's not even a TIMED event. You just could stand there and have a helper add the hats until you were the new record holder. What was the previous record? Why is this even considered?

Aren't you embarrassed to tell people that it's you in the book? As records go, your's is pretty lame.

This is not EFFORT. This is not like birthing a dozen babies at one time or climbing a mountain faster than anyone else. The only difficulty you would encounter with the party hat record would be the breaking of the elastic that keeps them on your body.

This leads me to another question - after you got the record, did you have any party hats left in the bag to beat that record? Was the size of the hats ever in concideration? The smaller the hat, the more you could put on your body.

Looks to me like you have some room left on your body to add a few extra hats. Was achieving your record number that taxing on your system that even ONE MORE HAT would have led to your death?

yes, but he did manage to avoid the obvious placement of breasts or willy. Somewhat of a record in itself as far as party hats are concerned...dont you think?!

SEE, the mere fact that there is room for two more hats makes the record invalid and even stupider.

I broke that record last week just trying to amuse my pet goldfish. If I knew if would of gotten me in the record book I would of drew a picture of myself.

Yeah, I'm unimpressed. As the holder of the unofficial record of the most number of chocolate chip cookies stuffed into my mouth at once, a feat that was frought with much danger, I might add, and a record I am expressly forbidden by my wife to tell anyone about, I...uh... oh darn.

Never mind.

Thanks MD - reason #54 why this record is stupid - you are embarrassed to tell friends or family about it.

I just counted the number of party hats on the body of the person who just set the record for the number of party hats on her body and CERTAINLY...That has to be a record worthy of the book.. I'm calling them...

Please don't call them Seductress. Keep your dignity intact. Save the embarrassment for something that really counts for something like 'most hugs ever administered to lonely Canadian shut-in'.

Weird record. Just imagine how many parties got short of hats just to break this record.
