R.J. Williams Sets World Lightbulb-Eating Record In 33.86 Seconds (VIDEO)

If R.J. Wiliams doesn't feel so light on his feet right now, there's good reason: He just swallowed a lightbulb in 33.86 seconds.

The resident of Brooklyn made his mark on history (and his gastrointestinal track) on December 9 and the adjudicators at recordsetter.com were there to make sure that everything was on the up-and-up as the lightbulb went down.

The rules that Williams followed were simple: He had to use a standard, household light bulb; he had to eat everything excluding the metal parts; he could only use his teeth to break and eat the light bulb and he could only wash it down with water.

The video is a little dark, (not surprising, considering Williams was eating the very thing that could have improved the picture quality), but you can definitely see Williams chowing down.

Bon appetit!

But Williams was the only wacky record-breaker in recent weeks. Check out the video gallery below.
