British Man Takes Bunjee Dunking World Record Off American

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

A man with a strong stomach, a steady hand and quite a lot of time on his hands has bagged himself a niche world record by dunking a biscuit into a mug of tea at the bottom of a 73.41 metre high bungee jump. That’s more metres than anyone being tasked with dunking a biscuit into a cup of tea from the sky has ever managed before.

24-year-old Simon Berry will be remembered through the ages for his remarkable achievement -- dubbed the Bungee Dunk -- which involved a chocolate Hobnob. An excellent choice, though we imagine the dunk was probably a little too brief to sufficiently soften the biscuit.

Even more remarkable is the fact that Berry has not simply set a new world record, but broken one too. Bungee dunking is apparently A Thing, with Ron Jones the previous record holder with a 60.553 metre jump in 2013. Jones is American, so you should be really happy for Berry IN THE NAME OF YOUR COUNTRY. [Guinness World Records]
