Those E.R. physicians sure have a sense of humour.

Ironically Guinness Book of Records founder Ross McWhirter was killed by the IRA in 1975.

Good point, emily.  I was going to quibble that any irony here is only with respect to this one record.

The World Record for Being Thrown by a Car.


Shouldn't the car get a World Record? Doing something seems more record-worthy than having something done to you.
