The Guinness Book of World Records is that lovely publication that let's anyone have a shot at a world record.  Some of these world records are taken directly from more authoritative sources like The Olympics, or academia.  But, Guinness also likes to play in the world of the odd as well. 

Ummm, what?  Why is almost cutting your face off with a chainsaw a world record?  Biting an apple and holding it in your mouth and repeating that for a minute isn't anything that someone should be record keeping for.

If anything the man with this world record should also hold the record for "Sickliest Man Alive."  If you want to have your name emblazoned in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records, please look for a healthier world record to pursue.

First off, which one is it, Guinness!?  Is it Smarties or M&Ms?  The article says M&Ms but the title says both, so let's just go with both.  Not only is this record completely useless, it also has a ton of specific qualifiers so that the man with the record could easily get his name on the record!  LAME!

Now, I'm not one to judge someone for what they choose to do with their body, but is it really healthy to have 47 cosmetic surgeries in less than 30 years?   Seems to me like it might be a bit of overkill, but to each their own.

My first thought is 'Ewww.'  But after reading that the oldest male stripper didn't start his career until age 60, it made me feel a little better about the situation.  If it were a man who had started at age 21 and had been doing it for 40+ years, I'd be a little concerned about some of his choices in life.

And there you have it, 5 Guinness World Records that you probably never knew existed.  Some of which, probably shouldn't exist.
