four leaf clover

My dream of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records has been crashed. I figured I could break the world record for four leaf clovers in my free time, but at 72,000 clovers (and a what, life sentence?) this guy has more ‘free’ time than I ever will.

Now I’m thinking the human domino record is probably the easiest to break. All we have to do is get 10,000 of our friends…

    You do realize we’re a pretty antisocial bunch right? I only keep as many friends as I currently have bullets. I’m going to need a bigger cartridge.

    I was wondering why he got them all from prision grounds

    “The current record holder is a Pennsylvania prison inmate, George Kaminski. While serving time on a kidnapping conviction for the past 25 years, Kaminski has gathered 72,927 four-leaf clovers. He found them, one at a time, hidden in the grass of prison yards.

    Kaminski was not available for an interview, but a caseworker at the minimum-security facility in Mercer, Pa., relayed a few questions and answers by phone. Kaminski said he started finding the clovers to show a younger inmate who was depressed that “you can do anything you set your mind to.”

    I believe there is an elderly man by the name of Mr. Martin who lives in Alaska that has found and documented 111,060 four leaf clovers. Hopefully the record will be updated this year.
