Take a look at snail covered face in the picture. This is Fin Keheler, a eleven-year-old boy from Sandy, Utah, who allowed 43 of the slimy mollusks to crawl on his face last Saturday. Why? Because Fin wanted to break the World Record for maximum number of snails placed on the face for 10 seconds.
The Guinness World Records website says the present record was set in 2007 for snails on the face for 10 seconds is eight. The boy says he has since learned the record was 36. On Saturday, Fin made three attempts. Sitting back in a reclining chair, snails gathered from neighbors' gardens were carefully placed on his face. Those that remained for at least 10 seconds were counted.
Now, Fin wants the Guinness World Records to verify his effort. His family is sending witness statements, video and media coverage to Guinness this week. Anyway this attempt proves that there are some people who can do anything and everything for name and fame. What you say?
