An 11-year old boy has beaten the previous record for sitting on a toilet after spending an entire weekend in the smallest room. Grabbing his Nintendo DS, Jack Connolly announced that he was ‘going for a poo’ shortly after breakfast on Saturday morning and only emerged at 8am on Monday when his Mum told him he was going to be late for school.
Mrs Connolly said, “We checked periodically throughout the weekend that Jack was alright but he kept saying he was just finishing his game of FIFA 12.”
It is understood that the game took so long because Jack had been trying to win the Premier League with Liverpool.
The previous long-standing, or more correctly, long sitting, record for toilet occupation had been held by Mr Stan Pearce since August 1987, although Mr Pearce disputes Jack Connolly’s claim to the record.
“It’s not the same record in my view, as Jack used today’s technology to help him sit there for so long,” explained Mr Pearce. “All I had in my day was a rolled-up copy of the Sunday Times.”
