Six hundred and seven people simultaneously donning fake chicken beaks looks pretty funny, but attendees at a Michigan comedy festival, Gilda's LaughFest, were serious about setting a world record for the most people wearing animal noses at a single venue. (Never mind that there is no Guinness World Record in that category; the group hopes the Guinness people will establish one.) "What an event.
It really brought the community together. It was incredible," attendee Sharon Irwin crowed to the Associated Press. Now, now, only a cluck would point out that we're mixing our bird metaphors.
