Nova and Jetstar world record attempt to hold the ‘World’s Highest Comedy’ show

DMG Radio’s Nova 100 station has teamed up with Jetstar for a world record attempt to hold the ‘World’s Highest Comedy’ show as part of the radio station’s promotion of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 

Nova breakfast presenter Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes and comedians Dave Thornton and Des Bishop will perform stand-up comedy for Jetstar passengers on a flight this Friday in a bid to get in the Guinness Book of Records.

David Koczkar, Jetstar executive manager commercial, said: “As far as we know it’s a first for an airline to provide live stand-up comedy on board a commercial flight – we thought it would be a unique way to mark the start of one of the biggest and most famous comedy festivals in the world, and maybe set a world record in the process.”

The stunt dubbed “Flight of the Comedians” will go ahead on March 26, in a flight from Sydney to Melbourne.

Prior to his flight, Hughesy and Nove 100 co-host Kate Langbroek will hold their annual Melbourne International Comedy Festival outside broadcast on Friday at the Lower Town Hall in Swanston St Melbourne, featuring comedians from the festival.

The radio station, which is a media sponsor of the annual comedy festival for the fourth year running, last year signed a content deal to provide three radio channels on board all Jetstar aircrafts.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s other media partners are The Age, Channel 10 and 774 ABC Melbourne.

World's Largest Bunny Collection

It started 18 years ago with an endearment and a plush bunny.

Today, Steve Lubanski and Candace Frazee live in The Bunny Museum, where they have the world's largest rabbit collection with more than 26,000 items. Guinness World Records dubbed them the largest in 1999 when there were only 8,437 pieces in the house.

Frazee counts and catalogs the collection and keeps track of visitors — hovering around 16,000.

The couple are surrounded by rabbits, from wallpaper to wind chimes, phones to faucets and sheets to screen savers. Thousands of items are in storage because there is no space left.

Erin Seeherman, 24, was visitor No. 15,976. She came from Philadelphia with pictures of her bunnies, Zeke and Nora, food for Frazee's rabbits and plans to buy lots of souvenirs at the museum gift shop.

"I was hoping it would be trinket heaven," she said.

Lubanski, 52, and Frazee, 53, met at a singles seminar in 1992. She called him "Honey Bunny" and he gave her a stuffed rabbit for Valentine's Day.

In the beginning, they gave each other bunny gifts on holidays. Then every day. Sometimes dozens a day. At the reception to their 1994 wedding, he dressed in a bunny costume; they did the bunny hop and ate carrot cake.

In 1998, they opened the museum, calling it the "hoppiest place in the world." Admission is free, by appointment only.

The couple have seven real bunnies and continue to expand their collection at antique, novelty and out-of-town stores. Even when they go on vacation, there are bunny influences — like the Rabbit Ridge Winery in Paso Robles or the Jackrabbit Trading Post in Joseph City, Ariz.

This time of year is like Christmas, because Easter makes stores nearly as bunny happy as they are.

The most asked-after item in the museum is an Elvis Parsley pitcher, Frazee said. But the most asked question? "How do you dust?"

Blood donations Guinness World Record set Cessnock’s Phil Baird

Mr. Baird received his framed certificate from Guinness World Records last week, almost a year after his first attempt to go down in history.

“It’s a big title, it’s hard to get your head around it,” he said.

“To think that I have given more of my blood than anyone else in the world – I still can’t believe it.”
                        Blood donations Guinness World Record set Cessnock’s Phil Baird
Mr. Baird applied to Guinness World Records in April last year after giving his 228th whole blood donation, but this effort not able to be accepted at the time because the system employed was to include all types of blood donors under the banner of just “Blood Donations”.

After Mr. Baird explained the difference between whole blood donations and apheresis (plasma and platelet removal), Guinness World Records created a new category for “Whole Blood Donations”.

He made his 231st whole blood donation at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service Donormobile in Cessnock on Christmas Eve, sent off paperwork to England, and after eight or nine weeks of thorough investigations, Guinness informed Mr. Baird that his record had been authenticated.

The certificate states: “The most blood donated was 231 whole blood donations by Phillip Baird (Australia) who made the latest donation in Newcastle, Australia on 24th December, 2009.”

Mr. Baird made his first blood donation at 19 years old when he enlisted with the National Service, and has continued to do so every 10 to 12 weeks since.

He has only missed one opportunity to give blood in the past 57 years, when a scar from minor surgery had not healed.

Riccardo Mortara sets new speed record on round the world private jet trip

With his only mainland U.S. fuel stop in Las Vegas, 62-year-old Swiss aviator Cpt. Riccardo Mortara went on to successfully claim a new around-the-world record of 57 hours and 54 minutes. But the stop in Sin City was the start of major drama and a battle with Mother Nature that nearly prevented the bid from being achieved.

Everything was plain sailing and crystal smooth after take off from Geneva, with stops in Abu Dhabi, Sri Lanka, Macau, Osaka, Russia, Anchorage and into Las Vegas. But a hint of air traffic delays and McCarran runway congestion should have been a red flag for the three-man crew of the 30-year-old Rockwell Sabreliner plane. Riccardo’s 28-year-old son was co-captain, and Flavien Guderzo, 26, was co-pilot.

What should have been a 12-minute refuel and oil change here turned into a 30-minute stop. Earlier in the secret submarine city of Petropavlovsk, Russian authorities wouldn’t allow the crew off the plane even for a bathroom break during refueling. In Anchorage, U.S. Customs confiscated all their food supplies onboard, including proscuitto and 4 pounds of caviar given to them by the Russians, but at least they replenished the plane with U.S. produce, and “Tina Turner” was waiting for them in Las Vegas!

Female impersonator Larry Edwards was on hand as our official representative. He also doubles as Beyonce in Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas at Imperial Palace and was on the runway for Mayor Oscar Goodman to present a key to the city for the 360 World Record crew sponsored by Swiss energy company Selectro.
