Extra Cold Guiness

After receiving the following email about my recent world record attempt, I decided to produce a site for "unofficial" world record attempts;

Dear Mr Wharton

Thank you for sending us the details of your recent record proposal for 'Number of FAB Ice Lolly's In One Day'. We are afraid to say that we are unable to accept this as a Guinness World Record.

We receive over 60,000 enquiries a year from which only a small proportion are approved by our experienced researchers to establish new categories. These are not 'made up' to suit an individual proposal, but rather 'evolve' as a result of international competition in a field, which naturally accommodates superlatives of the sort that we are interested in. We think you will appreciate that we are bound to favour those that reflect the greatest interest.
We appreciate that this may be disappointing to you. We are always keen to hear from people who wish to set a Guinness World Record. If you should need any advice regarding record breaking in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us, quoting the above membership number.

Once again thank you for your interest in Guinness World Records.

Yours sincerely,
Laura Baker
Records Research Services
