You Can Leave Your Hat On

And the new world record for the Least Surprising Holder of the New World Record for Largest Mariachi Band goes to...Mexico!


GUADALAJARA, Mexico — Ay, ay, ay, ay! Guadalajara finally boasts the world's biggest mariachi band.

A total of 549 musicians got together to win the record for the birthplace of mariachi Sunday, playing several songs in just over 10 minutes, closing with favorites "Cielito Lindo" and "Guadalajara."

A representative of the Guinness Book of World Records, Stuart Claxton, made it official at the International Mariachi Festival.


Somewhat amazingly, the old record of 520 was held by the United States. Even we think that's a scandal.
