The Top 10 Weirdest World Records


It seems like, these days, you can be honored with a Guinness World Record for almost anything. Makes you almost want to give a try. Anything from the most tattoos, balls held in a dog’s mouth, or collection of the most rubber duckies can make you famous in the world record world. Here is a list of the top ten craziest of the world records. 

When you were a child, did you ever try for a world record? It seems as if a lot of us did, but never achieved that goal. I remember it being so very difficult because there were only a certain number of records to beat. Now a days it seems like you can pretty well do anything to an extreme amount and get a world record.

Here is a list of ten of the world’s weirdest Guinness World Records.

1. Most Steps Walked Down by a Dog Facing Forward Balancing a Glass of Water

Sweet Pea, an Australian Shepard/ Border Collie, walked down enough steps while balancing a glass of water to land herself a Guinness World Record in 2008.

2. Fastest Time to Enter a Suitcase

September of 2009, Leslie Tipton set the world record for fastest time taken to climb into a suitcase. It only took her a little over 5 seconds to fit her whole body into a suitcase.

3. Farthest Milk Squirting Distance

From Istanbul, Turkey, Ilker Yilmaz, set the world’s record for squirt milk from his eye over 9 feet.
