News, but not the serious kind
Did you just hear a piercing scream?
Blog Guy, did you see they just set a new world record for “Most Body Piercings in a Single Sitting” yesterday? A person got 3,200 piercings. Do you approve of things like that?
The guy performing the procedure is named “Danger” and has tattoos showing behind his surgical mask, so you know he’s a top doctor. The woman getting pierced is a sideshow performer, so clearly she is good at making sound decisions.
Plus, it was done to get into the “Guinness World Records,” the best reason to do anything. It’s why we went to the moon, and also why we tracked Osama bin Laden.
So wait, Blog Guy. Why are you smiling. You’re hiding something, aren’t you?
Well, yes. This sideshow performer won’t hold that record for long, because I have a plan to go after it myself this weekend.
Oh, it’s just me wearing a Speedo swimsuit and safety goggles, in a small room with a thermos of margaritas and six pneumatic nail guns with their triggers taped down.
That sounds like a plan, Blog Guy. How long do you figure it will take?
Body piercer Bill “Danger” Robinson and sideshow performer Staysha Randall break the Guinness Book record for “Most Body Piercings in a Single Sitting”, at Inktoxicated Tattoos in Las Vegas, Nevada June 7, 2011. The previous record was 3,100 piercings, and Randall attempted 3,600 piercings, but decided it was enough after 3,200 piercings. The record is awaiting verification by Guinness to be official.
