A couple of unusual world records fell over the weekend. First, Joel Jarvis of St. Thomas, Ontario claimed the title of “World’s Largest Squash” by growing a squash that weighs 1,486.6 pounds. It’s been his dream since he was eleven.
- I thought the world’s largest squash was the time Micheal Moore appeared on the “The View” and accidentally sat on Elizabeth Hasselback.
And on Sunday, Indian-born Jauja Singh ran a 26-mile marathon in Toronto, likely winning the title of “The World’s Oldest Marathon Runner”. Singh is 100 and didn’t start running until he was 80.
- Instead of water bottles along the route, they gave him bottles of Ensure.
- Before the race he carbs up on prune juice to make him run faster.
