The Guinness Book of World Records has a lot of records that they keep track of. It’s really amazing to look through the records and see everything that they have official records for. Sometimes it’s amazing that there are even records for some things. You find yourself wondering “why?” quite often when you look through them.
The record book isn’t filled with just crazy, freaky stuff though. They also keep track of a lot of the things that celebrities do. There are many celebs that you probably didn’t know hold world records. I’d even bet that some of the celebs themselves don’t even know they hold world records for some of the things they do.
Do you know who has the most words in a recorded song? Or who took the most selfies in a three minute period? Did you even know that there was a world record for the most frequent clapper? Yes, there actually is. Do you know who it is?
