From the Guinness Book of Inexplicable Records

You can thank Jenny for sending me this squickifying image in the first place, of a man setting the world record for snorting milk up his nose and squirting it out of his eye. Who knew that was even possible, much less that there is a world record for it??

More importantly, does this mysterious nose-to-eye passage mean that this guy can breathe through his eyes? Because that would be awesome. I can see him trying to get into the Superfriends now: "My superpower is the ability to freak people the hell out in swimming pools by keeping only my eyes above water for hours at a time." "Oh...make him Aquaman's sidekick."

Milk? How do we know it's milk?

I simply don't believe it.

I do, however, find it reasonable to believe he's a Mormon, with a severe case of over-filled seminal glands. This alone should serve as a wake-up call to all those Mormon boys with their hands tied to their bed frames. Lose the guilt, lads. Beats losing your sight!

If memory serves, there was a guy (not the same one) who did something like this on the Guinness show when it was on Fox. A still photo is one thing, but video is even squickifyingier.
Since the late 1990s, it seems Guinness has been going for weirder, more shockworthy categories. I miss the days of having a larger section of language world records (longest word, frequent mentions of the guy with the really long last name, etc.) But those type of records don't get beaten as often.
