Japanese Tea Drinkers Break Record
I've given up trying to figure out why people do the goofy things they do. "Why ask why," as the ad slogan goes.
But when it comes to gathering together to do goofy things, I guess you could do a lot worse than hooking up with 14,717 of your closest pals to drink green tea.
That's what happened yesterday in Nagoya, Japan, where they set a new record for simultaneous tea-drinking. The line of tea-drinkers, who faced off against each other in pairs, stretched for nearly a mile.
If ever there was an article that could have been enhanced by a photo it's this one, but alas, no such luck.
While we're on the topic of records and tea and whatnot, I'll refer you to my earlier pieces on the World's Largest Teapot and the World's Largest Tea Bag.
