LONDON (Reuters) - The world's loudest burper will inhale deep breaths and then slurp down a fizzy drink on Friday as he attempts to shatter his own ear-splitting record, a spokesman for London's Science Museum has said.

Solicitor's clerk Paul Hunn from London is hoping to break his own record of 118.1 decibels -- a belch as loud as a pneumatic drill -- which he set in 2000.

Guinness World Records officials armed with a sound level meter and recording equipment will be on hand for the record-breaking attempt at the museum.

"Paul's training tips include eating something spicy the day before to build up gases, breathing in lots of air and then having a carbonated drink before burping," the spokesman said.

The world-record attempt is part of the museum's current "Grossology" exhibition, a look at the good, bad and ugly ways the human body works.

"We make choices everyday, some of them good, some of them bad. And - if we are strong enough - we live with the consequences."
