Only in Arabia!

I can just about see, or perhaps understand, the thinking behind an Institution such as the Guinness Book of Records. I mean, if you do something really spectacularly dangerous, you really want everyone to know how bloody stupid you really are; or if you swim, or ski, or surf, faster, higher or wetter than anybody else; you want everyone to know that you, or your ‘team’ have broken a record, or something. Its a sort of a bellweather mark; and you can now die content, or sink back into the grey nothingness of your miserable existence.


But to actually mark, as an achievement; the production of the Largest Tin of Caviar, weighing in at 17.86 kgs? As I have probably said before, ‘Effing Arabs. Too much cash, and no ‘effing idea !”

    In Russia, we’d be at a conference or whatever and someone would come in with a clear plastic bag of black caviar, to dole out for a certain price per whatever. Always thought it a nice way to take caviar home.
