Police Halts Fiesta Involving World’s Largest Piñata

Marketers never stop crafting innovative ways to attract the attention of the media (and of idle bloggers like yours truly). This time it was the turn of Carnival Cruise Lines, which this weekend broke a Guiness record by building the world’s largest piñata, holding over 8,000 pounds of candy!

According to an onsite Guinness adjudicator, the giant mock donkey measured 60 feet, 4 inches long; 23 feet, 10.5 inches wide and 61 feet, 10.25 inches tall.

Alas, the original plan to tear down the six-story beast with a wrecking ball was halted by the Philadelphia police for “safety reasons,” leaving hundreds of attendees very disappointed.

Well, I guess all they have to do is keep the giant burro in the closest storage. I am sure it will come in handy next Cinco de Mayo.
