An India man is headed for the Guinness Book of World Records after stuffing a staggering 459 drinking straws into his mouth at once.
Guinness confirmed Manoj Kumar Maharana, 23, of Odisha, broke the world record for most straws stuffed in the mouth without using hands by cramming 459 straws into his pie hole.
Maharana, who was allowed to use elastic bands to keep the straws together but not his hands, has to have all of the straws in his mouth and keep them there for 10 seconds without falling to obtain the title.
Maharana was allowed to use his hands to get the straws into his mouth, but not to hold them in place.
The previous record holder, British man Simon Elmore, stuffed 400 straws into his mouth at an event in Germany.
