It's Official: World's Biggest Rubber Band Ball

Steve Milton, Oregon's rubber-band-ball-making fanatic, broke into the Guinness Book with the world's biggest rubber band ball Tuesday.

"It's awesome, everything went just perfectly," Milton told The Register-Guard after a Chicago weigh-in ceremony. The monster amalgamation tipped the scales at 4,594 pounds and rose to 5 1/2 feet. While the Oregon paper posts a charming picture of Milton standing in a victory pose by his creation, Ananova has a shot of two of the "shirtless strongmen" who rolled the record-smashing ball onto the scale.
