“A British adrenaline junkie has given a new meaning to the phrase ‘high tea'” is how The Telegraph describes it. In a 246-foot bungee jump, Simon Berry dunked a chocolate biscuit in a cup of tea. A Guinness World Record.

Although we dull men enjoy dunking our biscuits — it’s the kind of safe excitement we like — bungee dunking is definitely not the way we do it.

There are much safer ways to earn Guinness World Records as was done by three men in our book Dull Men of Great Britain: Celebrating the Ordinary (available on Amazon UK and Amazon USA):


David Morgan — world record holder for his stunning collection of traffic cones


Peter Glazebeook — world record holder for growing giant vegetables


James Brown — world record holder for his collection of vacuum cleaners,  including this Kirby 100th anniversary model
