Its finally here! The Guinness Book Of World Records 2011 was published today.

The new book has a plethora of new weird and bizarre new records. Take Stephen Parkes, a media technician from Nottingham, 44, who has the ‘Largest Collection Of Smurf Memorabilia’ with 1,061 figures.

Simon Elmore held 400 drinking straws in his mouth for ten seconds in Bavaria, Germany, in August 2009 to win the ‘Most Straws Stuffed In Mouth’ entry.

The animal world is also well represented with entries like Swallow, the world’s smallest cow. She stands a mere 33.5 inches tall, has lived 11 years and given birth to 9 calves – all of which tower over her.

Fluffy the python who lives in Columbus Zoo and aquarium, Ohio, U.S won the ‘Longest Snake in captivity’ award, reaching an amazing 24 feet in length.

Winning a more obscure title is Anastasia, a Jack Russel who in 44.9 seconds seized the title of ‘Fastest Time To Pop 100 Balloons By A Dog’.
