Jonesing for a world record

Reuters via Yahoo! News
The saying “Keeping up with the Joneses” could not have been more apt on Friday as Joneses from around the globe headed to Cardiff to set a new world record. Joneses from as far afield as the United States and Australia flocked to the Welsh capital to beat the world record for a gathering of people with the same family name.

The Welsh bid hopes to attract up to 2,000 Joneses to a show in Cardiff where they will be entertained by singers and dancers, all called Jones, including former Bond actress, supermodel and pop icon Grace Jones, who headlines the show.

The current Guinness World Record for a gathering of people with the same name is 583 Norbergs in Sweden.
