Paperboy of the Day: The world’s oldest?


Ok, This link is to the Daily Mail, and well, I thought it was a good Daily Mail yarn, until the Beeb picked it up, so I hope they vetted it.

Mr. Ingram is trying to be acknowledge by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest and longest serving paperboy. He says he started in 1942 and has delivered more than 500,000 papers in Winterborne Monkton, near Dorchester, England.

Bothe sites say that the current record is held by Darlyne Markus, from Idaho, however there is no citation on the Guinness site for a longest-serving paperboy.

Alas, the “record” may fall to a Brit. Any one here in the U.S. want to step up and officially lay claim to the title?
