Man sets record for wearing the most pants

Gary 'Geordie Pantsman' Craig has beaten the world record by putting on 302 pairs of underpants.

The 53-year-old had initially set a world record of 211 pairs but was later beaten by Janine Keblish with 252 pairs. Not to be outdone, Craig returned this week with another stab at the record and succeeded with a whopping total of 302 pairs. "It went very, very well and the official number is 302," he said. "I wanted to be the first person to put on over 300 pairs and I did it."

The bizarre feat may sound straight forward but in actuality requires a considerable degree of skill and perseverance. "Putting on all those pants is harder than it looks because you're carrying an incredible weight, but the crowd really spurred me on and kept me going," said Craig.

"Gary 'Geordie Pantsman' Craig is celebrating after regaining the world record for wearing the most pants."

You just need to be a skinny person (to hold more layers of pants) with great bladder control, and then you can break the record. They call them pants instead of trousers in the UK these days?
