Nude Snorkeling Record Attempt Fail
Who can think of a better way to celebrate World Oceans Day than breaking a naked snorkeling record with a bunch of strangers? Seventy-seven ocean-hating Aussies, that's who. Apparently only 23 of the expected 100 participants showed up, resulting in a failed world record attempt for the most nude snorkelers in one place.
The mass nude snorkel was part of the international celebrations for the United Nations' World Oceans Day and aimed to raise awareness about the plight of the Australia's Great Barrier Reef. We won't hold a grudge though, especially since the organizers of the event forgot to register with Guinness in the first place. We're sure they were off somewhere watching the entire series of "Lost" while talking to dolphins on their iPad.
