Want to get your name into the Guinness World Book of Records
? Then show up at the Dallas Convention Center on Saturday morning. There, you'll team up to break the existing record of 1,481 for Most People Making Sandwiches Simultaneously
. Not only will you gain the notoriety of becoming a world record-holder (move over, fat motorcycle twins
), but you'll help to create thousands of sandwiches which will be donated to local charities.
In 2014, a similar Dallas event attended by 1,363 record-breakers generated 136,00 sandwiches. This year, over 3,000 people are expected to participate. By our calculations, it'll be a whole lotta sammich.
