|Katie Linendoll High-Fives Into Guinness World Records|
In the 55 years that people have been setting and breaking Guinness World Records, we've seen some pretty epic displays of one-upmanship. Some of the most captivating talent categories have even become battlegrounds for intense rivalries. And just last week, a new rivalry was born.
Me vs. Mr. Giggles the Clown.
Not to be confused with countless other clowns who call themselves Mr. Giggles, this Mr. Giggles also happened to be the World Record holder for the ‘Most High-fives in a Minute’. As someone with an incurable fear of huggers, the high-five has always been my go-to greeting. My technique a point of pride. And I've been wanting to break a world record, any record, for a very long time. In other words: it was on.
There were only three rules. You can't high five the same person twice. High fives had to be over the head and slap the hand. And if you missed a hand, you could slap it again. No problems there.
Is that the best you can do, Giggles?
