My family told me to stop telling Thanksgiving jokes ...
... but I told them I couldn't quit "cold turkey.”
Did you know? "The country Turkey holds 80 Guinness World Records spanning from historically producing the first coin, the oldest bridge, the first female pilot and even being the first pirates. Now, Turkey continues to top the list with the tallest man, the largest nose and of course, being the largest bread consumers".
One of its records is floating the largest peace symbol in the Marmara Sea - made of people. What about building the world's largest animated mobile phone mosaic with 504 phones creating the world's largest mosaic wall - 3.6 meters wide and 1.9 meters long. The tallest man alive is 8 feet 2.81 inches and from Turkey. They also have the tallest female teenage at 7 feet 0.09 inches. They have the records for the largest serving of pastry, for the largest full breakfast where 51,793 participants were involved. They hold the record for the world's largest zebeck dance and largest pilates demonstration/class. And on and on. See more on their records HERE.
