Jonesing for a Record in Wales

JonesOn Friday night, 1,224 people with the last name of Jones congregated in Cardiff, Wales to set a Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of folks with the same last name.

Even Grace Jones took the opportunity to make an appearance, singing “Slave to the Rhythm” for her namesakes. If you can read Welsh, here’s coverage from the local station.

Grace appeared to be the biggest diva on hand (no Tom or Catherine Zetas around), though there was no word if recently famous gay escort Mike Jones had made the trip across the pond.

The Agence France-Presse noted that “After the event, anyone calling a taxi back to home or hotel was also likely to be asked for their first name too.”
