It often seems like every week there is news of someone setting, or breaking, the Guinness World Record for some dubious achievement on which you never even believed people would have thought it fit to bestow commendation. (This week's example being the man who broke the yo-yo world record, though in his defense that at least required some technical skill.)

And so, in honor of the Guinness World Records' tireless support of novelty achievements, we've rounded up 13 of the strangest, and occasionally pointless, records (so many to choose from!) for your amusement. Think we've unfairly neglected something truly superfluous? Let us know.
