150 clothespins attached to a man's face
'Man fails to break clothes pegs on face record' - A man who holds the world record for having the most clothes pegs clipped to his face has narrowly failed to beat his own mark. Garry 'Stretch' Turner was hoping to clip more than 153 pegs to his face at the launch of the 2004 Guinness Book of Records in Manchester. But his effort at the city's Arndale Centre failed when he managed to clip on only 150 pegs, says the Manchester Evening News. The latest Guinness Book of Records features 1,000 new world records and is printed in 23 languages. (Story filed: 13:11 Thursday 30th October 2003)
