Have you ever wondered how many bananas you can fit in your pants? Or how many times you could get a Mattress World employee to say the word mattress in one phone conversation? Everyday, people from around the world send in their ridiculous world records to the Universal Record Database. Here are 10 of the most absurd set this year:

  • Most bunnies snuggled in a hammock—Cameron Diaz set the record with 48 on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but she didn't hold the record long—an Arizona DJ in Arizona snuggled an extra two bunnies.

  • Most people to run into a wall and fall down—A Boy Scout troop set the record when 28 people ran into a wall and fell down. They were going for 29, but one kid couldn't manage the falling down part.
  • Most times getting a Mattress World employee to say 'mattress' in a phone conversation—OK, anybody can have a record. Frazer Goodbody couldn't remember what the thing that he sleeps on is called. A Mattress World employee corrected him a dozen times. Somebody later one-upped him.
