Weird feats in the new Guinness World Records book 2020

Pinky pull ups, mayo eating and other weird feats in the new Guinness World Records book

The 2020 book of Guinness World Records is full of brand new feats and others that have gone unbroken for years because they’re too strange to be outdone.

Michelle “Cardboard Shell” Lesco downed three-and-a-half jars of the divisive condiment in just three minutes. That’s over FIVE POUNDS of mayonnaise consumed in the length of the average pop song.

Humphrey is the world’s smallest bull at just 26.6 inches tall.
Sweet, sweet Humphrey the miniature zebu stands just over two feet tall. Joe and Shelly Gardner bought the petite bull at an auction in Iowa in 2017, and he was so wee they didn’t realize he was already 2 years old.

New record: Most candles extinguished by a nunchaku in one minute – 52. China’s Xie Desheng snuffed out this impressive record title with pinpoint accuracy.

Snoop Dogg fittingly presented a monstrous gin and juice at a Napa food festival in 2018, but no drink has managed to dethrone it yet. (There is the broader “largest cocktail” record, which went to a 10,500-gallon margarita in 2012.)

Nilanshi Patel holds the record for world’s longest hair on a teenager. The 16-year-old’s hair is 5 feet 7 inches long.

Tazio Gavioli of Cavezzo, Italy, did 36 pull ups with his pinkies, per the 2020 record book. That’s just 32 fewer pull ups than the man who holds the record for most pull ups in one minute.

Winners who broke records for fastest marathon run in oddly specific costumes, include a woman dressed as a nut, a male nun and a man dressed as an astronomical body. Because if you try something odd, it might just be a world record.
