Man removes all his teeth for the Most Straws In Mouth World Record

This man, who prides himself in holding 20 world records, will do just about anything to set a World Record.

Guiness Rishi

Har Parkash Rishi (74) is definitely obsessed with records, so much so that he claims to hold 20 of them. For his latest record, he got 366 flags tattooed on his body and had all his teeth removed so he could put nearly 500 drinking straws and more than 50 burning candles in his mouth, Huffington Post reported.

Rishi told reporters that putting the straws in his mouth has been the toughest thing he has ever done to set a record. “I am the world record holder of 496 straws in my mouth. For that record, I needed space, I had to remove every tooth so that I could put maximum straws in my mouth,” Rishi told Reuters Television.

And it seems, despite the challenges, Rishi is still determined to beat more records. According to Huffington Post, he now aims to hold another record of having as many images of global leaders tattooed on his body. He currently has images of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Barack Obama, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, and Mahatma Gandhi.

According to Wikipedia, Rishi holds the following records: longest pizza delivery - 10,286 miles from Delhi to California to deliver a pizza to the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum in San Francisco, oldest adopted person - in 2001, Rishi adopted his brother-in-law Ravinder Kumar Vig, who became the oldest adopted person at 61 years old, ketchup drinking - drinking a bottle of ketchup in less than 40 seconds, and tallest sugar cube tower - 64 inches high.
