"WHAT? NO. I'M ON THE KHUMBU ICEFALL! THE KHUMBU ICE FALL! WHAT?"



A British climber is in the closing stages of an attempt to set a world record for the highest mobile call.

I've read the linked story a couple of times and I'm still none the wiser. Why bother? And don't give me any of that 'because it is there" crap. If you want a world record, why not emulate me, and go for "The Longest Time Doing the Twist on a 3'x3' Square of Axminster Carpet"? Although be warned, I will defend my record against all comers.

Most impressive, Weasel, but I've got that beat - I hold the regional record for projectile vomiting, and the greatest period amount of time spend staring at the TV without blinking.

Mrs. Rodent holds the All-Scotland record for gossiping, having passed judgement on an outstanding seventy four people in just four minutes.

She was only recently knocked off the pedestal in the "Talking About Nothing" class, after a local woman managed to speak for six hours without communicating a single fact.

If they weren't dead I'd call up the McWhirters and insist that FR be given the record for most consistent chanelling of Les Dawson in these comments. (And for you septics who don't know who Les Dawson is, I mean that as a massive compliment).
