The record book was thrown well-and-truly out of the window today when a teacher at a Bangkok school broke the all-time "Good morning" record before most decent folk were even out of bed.
Moys Kenwood, an English teacher at a local primary school, was forced to utter the redundant greeting a total of 1,747 times, despite the fact that the school has only 680 pupils on its roster.
Speaking to TheSpoof.com's Far East correspondent, Monkey Woods, Kenwood said:
"Children regularly greet me with a Good Morning in the afternoon, so it was a complete surprise to have them do it properly, to such an enormous extent that I wished I was back in Dudley," laughed the chirpy Yorkshireman.
The new record beats by 1, the previous record of 1,746 set on Tuesday when one of the students was off school with severe diarrhoea after eating a dodgy Thai curry.
