Largest collection of Daleks and most dogs skipping on a rope among bizarre new records in 2012 book


The brand new Guinness World Records 2012 is out now and features some of the most wonderfully bizarre records ever achieved by man or animal.

The extraordinary individuals, recognised in the historic publication for the first time, include British eccentric Rob Hull who has the Largest Collection of Daleks, Uchida Geinousha's 'Super Wan Wan Circus' for the Most Dogs Skipping on a Rope, and the 'Best Man' from Shelbyville, Illinois, USA, the Fastest Wedding Chapel in the world!

Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday said: "When you think of the weirdest and wackiest inevitably Guinness World Records will come to mind. The 2012 edition celebrates some of the most extraordinary examples of this.  The individuals that add a little colour to our day".
