J.J. Smith, Keeper of the Records for the Book of Records, has traveled the world to witness and confirm extraordinary athletic feats, bizarre measurements, unimaginable human accomplishments, and other uncanny events. However, nothing could prepare him for his most profound discovery of all in a tiny wheat-dominated town in America's heartland--a local farmer is consuming a Boeing 747, bite by bite, to prove his uncontested love to the woman of his dreams! David Schramm fits the bill in this story of wacky humans and their relentless aspirations to record their weird and uncanny accomplishments in the world-acclaimed Book of Records. His tongue-in-cheek interpretation paints vivid images of the longest unbroken apple peel or continuous pogo stick jumps reaching into the hundreds of thousands. Schramm has re-created a performance reminiscent of the days when families gathered around the radio. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
