I'm not sure if this belongs here, or in the "Intactivism" section, but a moderator can move it if appropriate.

"It has been bought to our attention that a circumcision event in the Philippines last Saturday has supposedly been approved by Guinness World Records.

Guinness World Records would like to clarify that it does not, under any circumstances, monitor, endorse or recognise this kind of 'record attempt'. The organisers of the event have no approval from Guinness World Records to use its trademarks in connection with this event and any claim to officially recognise this event will be rejected."

completely OT - i hate it when official kind of postings have misspellings.  it's a pet peeve of mine.
