An 11-year-old boy got slimed on his birthday.Yup. This is why I'm proud to say I'm a Utahn. Out.
Fin Keheler allowed 43 snails to be put on his face for 10 seconds in a gross effort to surpass the Guinness World Record of 36 set in 2007.
Friends and family helped Fin, of Sandy, Utah, make his four attempts at his birthday party Saturday.
He broke the record with 38 on the third try, but faced off with the slimy mollusks gathered from a neighbor's garden for a fourth attempt.
His family submitted video and witness statements to Guinness for verification.
Fin explained his technique.
"I closed my eyes and covered up my mouth with ... well, I sucked my lips in so that they could crawl on that."

Just wanted to send a holla' out to this kid from Sandy, Utah. Way to represent my hometown.
