Fungal Friday to you all, my little gingersnaps. Any interesting plans for this weekend? Like say... setting up a human mattress domino maze and trying to break the world record? (you'll need 851 people to do it)
The record was just recently broken by 850 people in New Orleans who apparently aren't afraid of lice, scabies and bed bugs. All the used mattresses were then donated to charity. You know, to spread the love. #SharingIsCaring
Human Mattress Domino World Record Broken In New Orleans (VIDEO)
Setting a world record is not something to take lying down -- especially when the record is for "human mattress dominoes."
But 850 people in New Orleans were willing to be "pushovers" in order to break the current record, set last year in Belgium, according to Reuters reporter Ellie Park.
The rules set by Guinness World Records for breaking the record are fairly stringent according to Metro.co.uk: Each person needs to touch the person behind them and there needs to be a consecutive chain of toppling mattresses.
Once the official pushed the first domino, the carefully-placed mattresses all fell in turn until the last fell on a red carpet. However, participants had to remain lying down until the record was confirmed. After that, the participants were allowed to jump for joy on their mattresses.
The record attempt was set up by La Quinta Inn & Suites, who wrangled 850 employees -- one for each hotel owned by the company -- and the mattresses were donated by the Simmons Bedding Company and will reportedly be donated to charity, according to CBS News.
In celebrity news, Ke$ha is leading the trends by having metal studs glued to her head. I know what I'm getting now. Apparently having a purple streak is so 2011. I'm not sure how TSA friendly the new style is, however. I wouldn't want to be standing in line at the airport behind her.
“Is happening,” the 24-year-old pop singer simply wrote. Her new style of choice? Getting metallic studs glued to the side of her head!
Earlier this month, Ke$ha showed off a much softer side with a make-under for Glamour‘s March issue.
FYI: K$ turns 25 tomorrow (March 1). She’s hoping to reach 3 million followers by then – you can follow her @keshasuxx if you’re not already!
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Ke$ha’s head studs – HOT or NOT?
And now for today's (parenting) FAIL... I think "Mom" wants to be a "Grandma" judging by the fact that she just poked a hole through the center of that condom.

And today's WIN!! The Cyber Conductor. I know the video is almost 8 minutes long but it is SO worth it!
Hey, WTF??!! Why isn't Weird Al on Team Jacob?
And that's all the time I have for today. Have a razzle dazzle weekend and until Monday, keep a safe distance from all giraffe feet. You're welcome.
Even though African lions are known as the king of the jungle, a giraffe could decapitate one with just one kick. The key difference here is that the term decapitation is broader than what most people believe. Decapitation in the broadest sense means the severing of the cranium from the spine.
Giraffe’s can also run at speeds up to 34 mph. Their tongue is 18 inches long and they have one of the longest tails in the animal kingdom. They live for about 25 years and their gestational period is 15 months. That’s a long time for a bun in the oven to cook!
