I sense a challenge

In more strange news from the peninsula:

A South Korean housewife on Saturday broke a world record in marathon singing after crooning for more than 76 hours without stopping at a Seoul karaoke bar, local record verifiers said.

Kim Sun-Ok, 54, broke the 75-hour Guinness World Record held by Marcus Lapratt of the United States, the private Korea Record Institute said.

She started singing at 11:14 am Thursday (0214 GMT) and sang a total of 1,283 tunes before she gave up at 3:21 pm Saturday following her family's appeal for her to quit for the sake of her health, it said.

Koreans are certainly competitive so it doesn't surprise me that someone here would spend 76 hours singing karaoke just to be in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Now I just want to see a playlist -- how many times do we think "Nobody" and the unintentionally hilarious Big Bang cover of "This Love" showed up?
