    They can say “world record” and it not be certified as a “Guiness Book of World Records world record.” There’s a big difference. The Guiness people are pretty picky.

    In that photo set I see ONE white squirrel, one woman with her face painted like a cat and bunch of people with pipe cleaners on their noses. I do not see 280 white squirrels. Don’t get me started on the question if over-fed, sun-starved Caucasians twitching to music achieves actual “dancing.”

    I’ll eat a white squirrel right here and now if the Guiness people certified THAT.
