How funky is your chicken?

Being a two time Guinness Book of World Records holder is easier than you think.  My boys and I have broken world records for two years straight.  You just have to be willing to partake in something zany with a large amount of people.  There are many records you can achieve without acquiring much skill beforehand.

Why would you want to? Why not????!  It’s fun to say you are a world record holder…. you just don’t have to say what it’s for.

Our first World Record on the books was for the Most Rubber Chickens tossed (924).  We joined 921 other people as we chucked rubber chickens on the target.  We demolished Boston’s old record of 265 people.

We  followed it up this year by participating in the World’s Largest gathering of people wearing animal noses…..chicken beaks to be exact.

We joined a crowd that totaled 607 people who together wore chicken beaks for 11 minutes and 39 seconds.  We passed the time by partaking in …of course ..the chicken dance played by a spirited polka band.  You can not be in a bad mood while listening to polka.

It’s fun to take part in something silly “just because.”  It reminds us to not take ourselves too seriously.
