Man attempts to set world record fist-pumping 17 hours straight
A 34-year-old unemployed [You don't say! -ed] man from Ohio attempted to set a Guinness World Record over the weekend by fist pumping for 17 hours straight.
James Peterson began the attempt on Friday morning, according to the Akron Beacon Journal, and was scheduled to end at 3 a.m. local time Saturday. Peterson, a self-described fist-pumping "veteran," was accompanied by a pair of videographers on his quest for the record--which included stops at bars in and around the Univ. of Akron.
A fist-pumping veteran? Is that really a thing?
Oh, God, he looks like Joe the Plumber!
Are all the douchebags in Ohio related or something?
If successful, it would be the first individual fist-pumping record listed by Guinness, though not the only one involving fist pumping.
On News Year's Eve 2010, the record most people fist pumping was set in Times Square, where 5,726 revelers were led by the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore," the reality show that popularized fist pumping.
Well, that's it. I'm going to go ahead and call it. 12/31/10, society officially pronounced dead.
