Destined for a World record attempt.

Is it fate?

For my tea, I fancied some fish fingers. I stuck 6 of them in the George Foreman, and had fish finger butties with tommy K.

Sometimes when having fish fingers, I dream about the big silver platter that Captain Birds Eye brings out in the ads, and I start wondering about how many I could eat. They are all laid out in an 'inviting' way, and part of me thinks I could polish off the lot.

So there I was dreaming away, and I have just watched a comedy on putlocker, starring Craig Cash, Diane Morgan, Sue Johnson, Joe Wilkinson, amongst others. I haven't seen the episode before, but lo and behold, Craig Cash's character is only attempting a world record fish finger eating thing, to raise money. They reckon, in the comedy, that the world record is 72, but I have just looked in the real world online, and the record is more to do with size of the fish eaten.

Well, how incredible I thought, what a coincidence. Maybe it is fate. Maybe I am destined to give it a go. Not today though, as I am full up now, but maybe in the future...Guinness Book of Records, here I come.

Are there any records that you think you could beat?

ps... i haven't finished watching the episode yet. he has just started eating them. I don't know how it ends up.

Go for it Tumbleweed, I too like fish fingers but sadly my appetite nowadays wouldn't allow more than four in a sarny.

I'd have a go at the staying in bed doing nothing record...I'm good at doing nothing.

Right..., I just carried on watching, and he didn't break the record. He managed...4

4...and even then he had to spit out the 4th one.!

He obviously hadn't trained up for it properly.

I need to get a proper training routine going.

In the meantime, back to the show...

Hi Boys, I have never eaten a fish finger - could tbis be a record too. I really must try them one day... am I mssing out ? Would the world be a better place if I sampled the Birdseye Fish Fingers... I even remember the little tune that went with the advert, but have no idea what they taste like.

The best way to eat a fish finger butty is with mayo and horseradish sauce, or even tartare sauce if you want to be posh.

birdseye f/fingers are overpriced and under weight [280g instead of 300g] compared to other brands.

Also, a lot of varieties look good value until you see the're just cheap old Pollock Fish Fingers not Cod Fish Fingers.

Nadiya Hussain (she of TGBBO 2015 winner fame) is mad for fish fingers, and claims to have once eaten 18 in one sitting.
She has even come up with the ultimate fusion food recipe Fish Finger Lasagne.

I love fishfingers sandwiches, sometimes include sliced tomatoes, mayonnaise or tartare sauce. Good quality bread is essential too
