At least it will keep them off the roads for the day...

Our roads will be a little safer on Sunday, as the residents of The Villages will be gathering en masse for a kazoo event. Not just any kazoo event, mind you, but the biggest kazoo event of its kind.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, "hordes of fun-loving retirees" will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest kazoo band. The current record is 2,679 kazooists.

The Villages is really kicking ass when it comes to World's Records. Last year they had the world's largest golf-cart parade (very prestigious). Now in the works - "The World's Largest Shuffleboard Competition" and "Most People Simultaneously Watching Wheel of Fortune". Go Villages!

P.S. In this article, the event organizer talks about the proper kazoo technique and mentions "not to blow". Similar advice was given to the residents of the Villages last year, after an outbreak of STDs in the retirement community.
