The University of the Cumberlands broke a record for the world’s longest line of hot dogs. Staff, students, community and faculty members participated to help the school achieve their goal of breaking the record. The university succeeded in their goal of 3,000 hot dogs touching and broke the “Longest Line of Hot Dogs” for the Guinness World Record. When the school asked for hot dog donations, Tony Thorpe, Owner of C&P Quality Meats, said he loved the thought of him and his family being part of a Guinness World Record. The students formed a “UC” out of their 3,031 hot dogs. The total length of the hot dogs was 453.63 meters, beating the previous record by nearly 100 meters.
