Do you know, believe it or not, there is actually a Guinness World Record for this? Apparently on 8th December 2011 in New York someone named Ashrita Furman (an American, of course), ate 20 M&Ms in one minute using chopsticks while wearing a blindfold.
Andy Warhol has a lot to answer for. But even he couldn’t have imagined that some of his compatriots would be so desperate to have their 15 minutes of world fame as to take the ridiculous to such dizzying new heights. I reckon it won’t be long now until someone is awarded a Guinness World Record for being the only American left alive who hasn’t attempted a pointless Guinness World Record.
(By the by, LW got really confused when I asked her to put her M&Ms in alphabetical order.)
