New Sofa Record: Couch Cruises at 92mph!
The Sun is reporting that a fully-reclined daredevil named Marek Turowsk has broken the Fastest Furniture Land Speed Record by kicking his couch into high gear. His pimped-out, high-performance sofa (fully furnished with a desk, plants, and a plate of cookies) crushed the previous record of 87 mph, that had held since 1998. For his speedy accomplishments, Turowsk will be featured in the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records, and will no doubt be talked about at water coolers from Ikea to Pier 1. Link via Boingboing.
