I want to recognize Shawn Cram a person who according to Google has had the record for the past 15 years.   In this day in age when records come and go Shawn's 2,544,400 has stood the test of time.  So it deserves it own thread.   It's an amazing accomplishment.   This record has been approved by Google.  The world's foremost authority on every thing!!!!
Great job Shawn!

And a statement for those not in the know reading this.

1. It's an April Fools joke
2. I'm actually happy Shawn Cram is getting attention for his record, even though he doesn't hold it anymore.
3. I wish Google would do the same with Tim Sczerby, and label him the record holder in Donkey Kong.  8)

Nah, you aren't happy about that, or you wouldn't have posted it. Has nothing to do with April Fools. What WR holder would be happy about that?

A record holder who realizes they have received WAY more attention than they deserve simply because Donkey Kong is in the title.  I've done April Fools jokes before..   Perhaps subconsciously I have ulterior motives, but I can tell you consciously I thought this was a good April Fools joke.

By the way, great job on getting 7th in the Crap tournament.   You are a pretty good gamer.  8)
