Monster meatball sets new record

The meatball must use standard ingredients, be made in one day, and be edible

A restaurant in the eastern US state of New Hampshire has broken the world record for the largest meatball.

Matthew Mitnitsky, the owner of Nonni's Italian Eatery in Concord, said the 222.5lb (101kg) meatball had been verified by Guinness World Records.

Mr Mitnitsky said he wanted "to bring the meatball back to the East Coast".

The old record of 198.6lb (90kg) was set only two months ago after the US talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, vowed to beat a record set in Mexico in August.

To break the record, the meatball must be a larger-scale version of the normal food item with the same classic ingredients, be made in one day, and be edible.

Mr Mitnitsky's record-breaking meatball was later donated to the Friendly Kitchen in Concord to feed the hungry.

Records like this are stupid. Just add 5 lbs more meat and beat the old record.
