Guinness World Records

Yesterday while browsing through digg.com, I came across an article titled “10 Frothy Facts about Guinness, St. Patrick’s Favorite Beer“.  Since I’ve taken a liking to Guinness lately, I thought I’d take a look.  It was fact #6 that through me for a loop.

What!?  Guinness World Records (formerly The Guinness Book of Records) is named after Guinness beer?  How did I not know this?

A little more digging around reveals that it all got started by some big-wig at Guinness who got in an argument over what’s the fastest bird.  No word on whether he won the argument.
