GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Gilda’s LaughFest is inviting the public out to recapture a world record they once held: The Largest Rubber Chicken Toss.

LaughFest and participants in Grand Rapids originally set the record at the Community Kickoff event back in 2011 with a total of 925 rubber chickens tossed all at once.  That record was broken by a church in Canada when they tossed 999 rubber chickens.

LaughFest wants the record back.

On March 10 starting at 5:30 p.m., organizers will provide 1,200 rubber chickens to people who gather at Calder Plaza in downtown Grand Rapids.  The program starts at 6:30 p.m. and the official attempt to reclaim the record will happen at precisely 6:45 p.m.

LaughFest has turned the Community Kickoff into a fun way to get ready for all the comedy acts that come to perform throughout the festival.

    Just when you thought SnoreFest could not get any lamer.
    I just fear for what they will do next year. I can see it now! Headline comedians: Sinbad, My cousin’s uncle Fred, and a plate of mashed potatoes. World Record Attempt: Largest gathering of people who wished they were somewhere else.
