24 Of the Weirdest Guinness World Records That Are Downright Crazy
The Guinness Book of World Records isn’t as traditional and conventional as it seems. It is a highly entertaining book where you may find some really wacky and weird records that will make you continue looking for more. It seems Guinness has compiled every conceivable record ranging from the ordinary to the downright bizarre and qualifies more for a Ripley’s Believe It or Not instead. We have compiled for you 24 of the weirdest Guinness records ever recorded some of which may make you laugh. So check out the wacky list.
1She crushes watermelons with her thighs
Yes, you heard right, that’s Olga Liaschuk for you!! The strong woman from Ukraine who will definitely not be intimidated if someone gets between her thighs because she holds the record for crushing three watermelons in just 14.65 seconds. Imagine what she could do to a man’s head?? At an event held in Mediaset Studio Milan, she broke the world record on 26th June 2014. That is truly what you call thunder thighs, and though she tried attempting the feat of most watermelons crushed with thighs under a minute, she fell short of the existing record.
2Furthest distance to blow a pea
This guy must have been adept at shooting snotty balls in school. Andre Ortolf has, in fact, several records to his name but this one is truly wacky where he blew a pea 7.51 meters during an event in Germany on July 12th, 2014. Andre also holds the record for running the fastest 100 meters wearing ski boots and again in clogs. What weird stuff will they think of next?
3 Most straws stuffed in the mouth
Why would anyone want to stuff their mouth with straws?? But that’s a feat evidently which is held by UK’s Simon Elmore who stuffed 400 straws into his mouth holding them for 10 seconds without using his hands. The feat was accomplished at the Mark ‘N’ Simon Show in Solhuben Bavaria, Germany on August 6th, 2009.
4 Most gurning world champion wins by a female
Confused by the term gurning? Well, it’s making stupid or grotesque faces!! By now you must have gone WTF!! Apparently, there isn’t just a world championship of making an ass of yourself or gurning; there is also a Guinness world record for winning the title several times and the record is held by Ann Woods who has won the event 27 times since 1977.
5 Most toilet seats broken by the head in one minute
Among weirdest Guinness records, this definitely must be including participants who are all frustrated and crazy people because why would you want to bash a toilet seat with your head? The record incidentally is held by Kevin Shelly an American, who splintered 46 of them in just one minute. The feat was accomplished on September 1st, 2007 on the set of the Guinness book of world records show in Die größten Weltrekorde in Cologne, Germany.
6 Most clothes pegs clipped to the face in one minute
This gets wackier and stupider by the minute. This, of course, is some sadomasochistic thing where an Italian named Silvio Sabba clipped his face with 51 clothes pegs simultaneously in Pioltello, Italy on December 27th, 2012. One can imagine what his face must have looked like after taking them off.
7 Longest eyelash
How exactly will someone walk around with such long eyelashes dangling from your eyes but some people are weird like 49-year-old You Jianxia who holds the world record for the longest eyelash with her left upper lid measuring in at 12.40 cm (4.88 in) long. Her lashes were measured in Changzhou, Jiangsu, China, on June 28th, 2016. Jianxia first noticed her unnatural eyelash growth during a nature retreat in 2013. Wonder what other hairs could she be having growing that long but hey?? Maybe she doesn’t really know there is a thing called SCISSORS??
8 First implanted antenna
Ok, this is all for science so give credit to the cyborg freak Neil Harbisson who has become the first person in the world to have an antenna implanted in his skull. It utilizes audible vibrations to relay information to him. He was recognized for his feat by Guinness in September 2017, yes just last month!!
9 Most Jenga blocks removed by whip in one minute
This is one mean female Indiana Jones that should be given some credit because she can really wield a mean whip. All it takes is a great black gothic leotard outfit and an Instagram account and she would become famous instantly. Seriously though, April Choi holds the Guinness record for removing the most Jenga blocks by a whip I one minute at an event in Peoria, Illinois, on September 27th, 2016 where she removed 4 blocks.
10 Longest Kiss
Wow, you can start drooling and conjuring up naughty scenes right now at such a record. Imagine kissing for 58 hours 35 minutes and 58 seconds. That is some liplock which was held at a competition organized by Ripleys Believe it or Not in Pattaya Thailand. The event was won by Ekkachai and Laksana Tiranarat who won a cash prize and two diamond rings as well as the Guinness title. What would happen if the organizers allowed it to go further?? I’m sure they would have broken more than just records then.
11 Most consecutive stairs climbed on the head
Wacky and crazy some people are no doubt. Anything for a record, even walking up steps on your head. That’s what Chinese athlete Li Long Long (is there someone called Li short!!!) ended up doing by ascending 36 consecutive steps on his head at the world record special I Jiangsu China on January 5th, 2015. Incidentally, he beat his own record.
12 Most rotations hanging from a power drill in one minute
Some people aren’t just crazy; they are ready for the loony bin because you need to be loony to think up such stupid thing which is how you get into Guinness. Bet you there is a record for the most number of loony attempts trying to break a Guinness record too. This guy, also from China hung from his power drill stuck in the ceiling and switched it on. He now holds the record of 148 rotations set on the Madrid show of the Guinness world records in Spain on December 23rd, 2008. Maybe he managed it because there weren’t many brains to rattle.
13 Most canned drinks opened by a parrot in one minute
Ok!! This deserves credit; it’s amazing for a parrot to open just one canned drink but 35??? Yes!! That’s what Zac the Macaw did in San Jose California on January 12th, 2012 when he opened 35 canned drinks in one minute setting a Guinness world record. Good boy Zac!!
14 Largest collection of rubber ducks
Besides being an Assistant professor at the University of Washington, Charlotte Lee also holds the Guinness title of having the largest collection of rubber ducks. She has been collecting since 1996 and has now 5.631 rubber ducks displayed in showcases at her home! But seriously couldn’t she collect something else instead?? Rubber ducks?? Weird, but to each his own!
15 Most wins at the World Beard/Mustache Championships
Meet Karl –Heinz Hille, the world champion of the best beard and mustache. And yes!! There is a competition for that too and Karl has won it the most number of times which is why he is in Guinness as he may not be having anything else to do. He has won the title 8 times in the imperial partial beard category from 1999 to 2011. The competition is based on style and length.
16 Longest distance keeping a table lifted with teeth
It seems Guinness records are thought up in extreme moments of insanity or by people with OCD, lifting up a table with teeth, seriously?? Well, Georges Christen showed a strong set of Chompers by lifting a table weighing 12 kg, a person sitting on the table weighing 50 kg and then running 11.80 meters with that in his teeth. The feat was held on the Lo show dei records in Spain on February 9thth 2008. Bet he is a Colgate model by now.
17 Most Big Macs consumed
This understandable after all who can stop at just one but!! 14 Big Macs a week!! That’s what Donald Gorske has been eating for years and has now earned his palace in the Guinness book of world records for eating a total of 28,788 Big Macs.
18 Longest metal coil passed through the nose and out of the mouth
UGGHH again!! Andrew Stanton is definitely a loner in his category because who in the right mind would want to shove a metal coil through his nose?? Stanton passed the metal coil that measured 3.63m through his nose and out of his mouth on LO Show Dei record on March 31st, 2012.
19 Largest collection of garden gnomes and pixies
Now, this is a cute record that would make anyone’s garden a virtual fairyland. Ann Atkin holds the Guinness Book of World records for having the largest collection of clay Gomes and Pixies totaling 2,042. She even has a 4-acre Gnome reserve where she keeps them in West Putford, Devon, UK.
20 Longest legs
Now, this is a nice record which many would want to watch. Ekaterina Lisina from Russia holds the world record for the woman with the longest legs. Her left leg from the heel to the hip measures 52.2 inches while her right leg measures 52.0 inches.
21Longest time spent in direct full body contact with ice
Torture would never affect this guy Songhao Jin who endured lying on ice bare body for a time of 1 hour, 35 minutes and 10 seconds. He accomplished the feat at the Guinness word record special in Xiamen, Fujian, China, on September 4th, 2014.
22 Most ice cream scoops balanced on a cone
Now rather than balancing ice cream scoops, if this guy ate them it would be really something. Dmitri Panciera holds the record for balancing 121 ice cream scoops on one cone, a feat he accomplished on September 20th, 2015. The previous world record held by him was 109.
23 Highest bar jump cleared by a llama
Truly one of the weirdest Guinness records, a jumping Llama!! What next?? But give credit to this guy named Caspa who lives in a dog center in Porthmadog who must be thinking he is a dog actually after living among them. No one told him he is a Llama who can’t do such things, but then he was inspired wasn’t he?? Caspa set a world record by jumping over a bar that was 3ft and 8.5 inches high.
24 Most beer steins carried over 40 m
This guy should be a super sever at the Oktoberfest and he would definitely be lapped up by any bar. Oliver Struempfel holds the record for carrying 25 beer steins over 40 meters on September 21st,2014. But hold it!! There is also a female who holds a title of carrying 19 beer steins. Anita Schwarz.
