Life is a marshmallow

You’d think the judges at Guinness World Records would honor David Rush for the numbers of world records he’s broken — some 250 Guinness records to date, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC].   Most recently he broke the record for catching the most marshmallows in his mouth in one minute — at least 60 of them. His brother-in-law, Jonathan Hannon, helped him out by operating a makeshift, handheld catapult to deliver the sweet treats at an event in New York City recently to celebrate the launch of the 2023 Guinness Book of World Records.




Who doesn’t love a cannoli

It was a tasty record that a team of chefs from all over Italy concocted recently — a mouthwatering 70-foot, 3.7-inch cannoli, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Its crispy, tasty shell was filled with 1,500 pounds of sweet ricotta much to the delight of the residents of Caltanissetta, Sicily, which is known as the birthplace of the cannoli.




It is the “wurst” of times

Oktoberfest is back! The fest was postponed for two years due to covid, much to the chagrin of beer lovers from around the world.  The legendary annual German beer celebration has been attracting local and international tourists since 1810, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. In recent years — prior to the pandemic — some six to seven million tipplers, ale addicts and hops handlers would gather in Munich each year at about this time for the festivities, downing millions of liters of the brew and devouring millions of bratwursts, bockwursts, weisswursts and any other kind of wurst you desire. The festgoers are back, they are thirsty and hungry. Wunderbar!
