Tallest Cookie Tower

I'm a bit obsessed with Cathie's Anzac cookies. I have made them three times in the last week. As soon as they have cooled on the wire rack they are gobbled by whomever's around, which is a bit of a bugger as I'm keen to try to break Ashley Klinger's world record of 28 homemade cookies stacked high.

Baking not your thing?

Eric Matyjasik set a new world record for unzipping his pants 162 times in 30 seconds. Silas Hyde completed 83 armpit farts in 30 seconds for a new world record. Bill Geist took 13 minutes, 4.75 seconds to fully dissolve a Pep-O-Mint Lifesaver on his tongue, for the gong.

Interested in breaking a record of your own? You are sure to have much fun merely deciding which one over at The Universal Record Database.

Interesting whether it’s ‘whomever’ or ‘whoever’.
I think ‘whom’ and its derivatives are used when the people are the object of the sentence, i.e. when the verb is doing things to ‘whom’ or ‘whomever’.
In this case the verb is ‘gobbled’ and the people are the subject of the sentence, i.e. they’re doing the gobbling.
So, as a non expert grammar aficionado, my two cents are on ‘whoever’ – which sounds less formal anyway.
