Mexico's Magnificently Massive Maracas

 

Maracas

 

The good people of the village of Guacamole in Mexico have once again made it into the record books after constructing the biggest pair of maracas in the world.

The massive instruments stand over twenty-five feet high and require a team of forty men to lift each one. The villagers plan to give them their inaugural shake at a special ceremony later this year, and some casualties are expected.

This is not the first time the villagers have done something like this. In 1989 they constructed a giant tambourine, which saw active service for over ten years before being retired and converted into a swimming pool. Next year they plan to start work on a set of really big castanets, and have no doubt received much encouragement after being nominated for the prestigious Nobel Prize for Pointlessly Large Percussion Instruments.
