Two guys from Denver just set a Guinness World Record for building the tallest waffle stack (seriously) and the Twitter thread chronicling their momentous achievement is one heck of a must-read.
Spencer McCullough, 23, and his friend Steve Garguilo, used more than 50 pounds of waffle batter and even followed a 40-page PDF that McCullough received from Guinness to ensure that what they made fit the record-keeper’s definition of what they believe constitutes a waffle.
Because creating the world’s tallest stack of waffles naturally qualifies as very important news, Denver Post reporter Elizabeth Hernandez was tasked with covering the event.
Garguilo, who traveled to Denver from Texas for the occasion, responded to McCullough asking if he would join him in the record attempt with, “In the future, please phrase these requests as a sentence, ‘you are coming to Denver’ and not as questions. See you then.”
The rest of the day Hernandez painstakingly reported on the historical goings-on taking place in McCullough’s back yard.
Some highlights… (no, this is amazingly not ALL of the tweets she posted on the record waffle stacking event).
Oh, the anticipation.
And we’re back.
Or music. That works too.
