Over the weekend, China nabbed yet another baffling world record, in the form of a chef from Guangxi who roasted more lambs simultaneously than anyone in recorded human history.
The enterprising cook in question is Jiang Linsheng, who roasted 216 lambs in 2 hours, with the use of two 10-meter-long metal racks. Guinness official Lu Xiangyun witnessed the landmark feat.
According to NetEase, Jiang first established his roasting services in Nanning in 1997 and is no stranger to culinary world records. In October 2007 he achieved the commendable task of roasting 2,008 chickens within 100 minutes. In addition to that, he’s also overachieved by roasting 100 pigs and 136 goats simultaneously.
However, some netizens haven’t been so impressed with the latest stunt, doing their own roasting of Jiang himself, SCMP reports.
“What is the use of this? Is it meaningful to the development of society? Treating slaughtered animals as a kind of skill – this record is utterly pointless!” exclaimed one commenter, who probably won’t be ordering a Jiang-roasted lamb at a discount price.
Last week, the unofficial record for most goats cooked to a fine crisp at the same time was set by an unfortunate truck driver in Guangxi.
