News, but not the serious kind
Death, where is thy sting?
A number of readers wrote in following my recent post about the guy who holds the world record for the largest number of scorpions in his mouth.
While many people would rather not put scorpions where they chew their beef jerky, they seem eager to go for some other record in the scorpion category.
There are lots to choose from. This woman here just set a record for the longest stay with 5,000 live adult scorpions.
And that isn’t all. Here are some of the other records still up for grabs:
- Most live scorpions up your nose
- Most live scorpions hidden in your uncle’s hoagie
- Most live scorpions in your high school graduating class
- Most live scorpions left under the seat in dark a Port-a-john
Line up, folks, there are plenty of scorpions to go around!
