|A quick bite
Miki Sudo and her husband, Nicholas Wehry, are known as The Hungry Couple in their hometown of Tampa, FL. The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] explains that they earned their moniker not because they eat a lot, but because they eat so fast — fast enough to get in the Guinness Book of World Records. Between them they recently downed 18 hot dogs for Guinness records — she scoffed down six frankfurters in one minute and he gulped 12 wieners in three minutes. Oh yeah, Miki also holds the record for eating a whole burrito in 31.47 seconds.
Yet another fish story
Goldfish are one of the most popular pets for kids, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. They are easy to take care of and hardy enough to live as long as ten years. They grow to a manageable six inches in a tank. How big can they grow in a lake, for example? A British angler recently landed a monster of a goldfish in a lake in Champagne, France. It weighed in at 67 and a half pounds.
Mink on the run
It’s suspected that it was the Animal Liberation Front [ALF] that broke into a mink farm in Van Wert County, OH recently and “freed” as many as 40,000 of the little critters — enough to make as many as 500 mink coats, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. If the ALF thought they were saving the lives of the little mammals, they were mistaken; many of them remained on the farm, but most of them got away and were killed when caught. The local sheriff’s department warned that “minks are carnivorous mammals that stick to a diet consisting of fresh kills. They regularly hunt prey bigger than themselves. As a result, they can be a bothersome pest for homeowners, livestock owners, and property managers.”
