Birds of a feather set record together
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio : An Ohio university has apparently set a world record for the number of people dressed in penguin costumes.
The Vindicator reported that 972 Youngstown State University students, alumni and community members gathered on the school’s campus on Saturday in their best penguin finery to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the university.
Youngstown State’s nickname is the Penguins.
Saturday’s waddle of faux birds apparently broke a mark recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records when 624 people dressed as penguins gathered at a children’s hospice in England in 2015. –AP
