If you’re into wackiness, you’ll love the new 2017 Guinness World Record Book, which added these 6 new feats to the annual publication:


Largest Afro:  Congrats to Tyler Wright, who’s afro is a whopping 10″ high and 9 ” wide. Now that’s a lot of hair!


Highest llama jump:  Who knew llama’s could jump? Well, a llama named Caspa sure can, because he’s the record holder after jumping 3’8″!


Most bowling balls held simultaneously:  Chad McLean held 13 bowling balls, obliterating the previous record of 9 balls.  By the way, the balls in total weighed 208 lbs.


Fastest escape from a straight jacket underwater:  Lucas Wilson of Canada did it in just 22.86 seconds.


Longest full-body burn:  First, WHY?  Josef Toedtling apparently set himself on fire for 5 minutes and 41 seconds.  Kids do NOT try this at home.  It’s dumb.


Most functional gadgets on a cosplay suit:  A Batman-inspired suit with 23 different tricks, owned by Julian Checkley, is now entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.  Think we’ll see this suit on tour at the next Comic-Con?
