Man breaks watermelon cutting record

A New York man has broken the world record for cutting the most watermelons on his stomach.

Ashrita Furman, a 63-year-old New Yorker who holds the world record for setting the most Guinness World Records, came up with the strange idea.

While he didn’t have any competition, Guinness stipulated that he had to slice at least 20 watermelons to be recognized.

He managed to cut through 26 melons with his tool of choice, a katana, in less than a minute. (He walked away without a scratch.)

Furman, who has been called “Mr. Versatility,” currently holds more than 200 Guinness records. He set his very first record in 1979 after completing 27,000 jumping jacks, and he hasn’t slowed down since. In the past near-40 years he has set the record for—among other feats—the most knives caught in a minute (54); the greatest distance traveled while juggling on a pogo stick (6.44km); and most grapes caught in his mouth in one minute (86).
