The record breakers

It seems that the folks at the Guinness Book of World Records are handing out awards for just about anything that anybody can think up, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. For example, they recently added a New Yorker by the name of Eric “Badlands” Booker to their list of record breakers, honoring him with two titles — one for downing a liter of soda pop in record time and another for gulping a liter of tomato juice. Meanwhile,  Guinness has announced that Johan Espenkrona who resides in Sweden, has broken the world record for picking up and tossing a washing machine more than 14 and a half feet.

The kid with the long ears

A Pakistani goat farmer says the folks at Guinness should award his newborn kid for having the longest ears on record. Simba, his baby goat, was born recently with a pair of ears measuring 19 inches in length, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Nubian goats are known to have extra-long earlobes. But the experts tell us that normally their ears extend to about an inch or so below their snouts.

Village for sale

Thinking of making a move? According to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], if so, you might want to  consider making your way to Warsaw, MO where a 19th century theme park complete with two cabins, a grist mill, a schoolhouse, a general store, a tavern, a blacksmith’s shop and a jail is up for sale. It is owned by Marion Shipman who says he and his family built the property themselves and, in 1979, turned it into a theme park reminiscent of rural villages of the 1800s. It’s located between two of Missouri’s biggest lakes — Truman Reservoir and Lake of the Ozarks. The price tag: $295,000.
