On August 14, the Jewish Lads and Girls Brigade in the UK set the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest custard pie fight. With 253 people joining in on the festivities, the group demolished the original record, which was set in 2008 by 120 people in Los Angeles. After unleashing 648 pies in a matter of minutes, those participating in the fight soon found themselves in over 52 gallons of delicious custard. “We did have 650 pies to start with, but I think two got eaten,” said Steven Weller, who organized the pie fight.
