One of our favorite sites right now is RecordSetter.com, a bizarre Guinness Book competitor that foregoes that organization’s strict adherence to notability in favor of letting just about anybody compete for any world record they want. The end results are hilarious, absurd and sometimes actually impressive.
Case in point: Dinesh Shivnath Upadhyaya, who crammed seven full-size table tennis balls into his mouth to set a world record we didn’t even know existed. Sure, cramming things into your gob is a widely-recognized category of human achievement, but do we really need a record for every Chubby Bunny variant out there?
This isn’t to discount Dinesh’s accomplishment here: it looks pretty freaking painful to have seven ping-pong balls in your mouth at the same time, even if it is for the betterment of humanity. Now that the world record’s been set, though, it’s just waiting for another ambitious soul to top it with eight balls. Or more, honestly – set the bar high and discourage any pretenders to your throne.Get your balls in the game! Donate to the Sean Kimerling Foundation to win the battle against testicular cancer.
