A matter of record

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Quasimodo were all talking one day.

Sleeping Beauty said, “I believe myself to be the most beautiful girl in the world.”

Tom Thumb said, “I must be the smallest person in the world.”

Quasimodo said, “I absolutely have to be the ugliest person in the world.”

They all decided to go to the Guinness Book of World Records in London to have their claims verified.

Sleeping Beauty went first and came out looking deliriously happy. “It’s official! I AM the most beautiful girl in the world!”

Tom Thumb went next and emerged triumphantly shouting, “I am officially the smallest person in the world.”

Sometime later, Quasimodo came out looking confused and asked plaintifly, “Who is Camilla Parker Bowles?”
