Well, Bill Geist (dad of today’s Menu guest Willie Geist) caught up with the most recent URDB event in New York to find out what all the maple syrup chugging, ear wiggling fuss was about. Take a look, there’s some familiar faces in there — who knew we were surrounded by so many talented, world record holding people!
