There is no shortage of creativity when it comes to Guinness World Record attempts in China. Thus why on Saturday in Panjin city, Liaoning province, there was no shortage of crabs.
If you came here expecting to see anything other than pictures of a giant vat of steamed crabs, then you can click out of that tab right now, my friends.
In the latest show of excess for a grab at Guinness glory, people in Panshan county over the weekend rolled out this seven-ton pot holding hundreds upon hundreds of crustaceans to celebrate its upcoming crab-eating season.
The container measured 6.6 meters in diameter with a depth of 1.5 meters, and may very well put Liaoning’s oil-rich city on the map (along with the holders of these very pointless world records).
