Record Breaking Pies


The Universal Records Data Base allows anyone to hold any world record they can dream up (such as
Most Dog Biscuits Eaten By A Human In Five Minutes), and it tends to be stuff that the Guiness Book of World Records might not touch.  The rules are that you have to have at least one witness and photographic or video evidence to be official, and then you must post it on the internet. You can read all the rules and regulations here, and read about my attempt at breaking the record for Most Checkers Stacked in the Palm of One’s Hand here on Brokelyn. Check out the comments, I didn’t even get close.

I do hold another record, though: Most Homemade Pies Donated to a Mission. After chatting with database manager for the URDB, Robert Birdsong, at the Connect Four tournament, I decided to take my plans to bake for charity on Thanksgiving and turn them into a World Record. I baked six homemade pumpkin pies for the Bowery Mission on Thanksgiving eve and made a post-parade donation. Now I hold the record! You are strongly encouraged to break it.

    Thanks for spreading the joy 🙂
