Going for a record

Improved transport links will be required
The Wight Hotels and Tourism board (WHAT), are hoping that their latest initiative will help them get into the record books and prove a long standing urban myth.

The urban myth in question is that the whole of the world's population could fit onto the Isle of Wight.

"Obviously," said WHAT spokeswoman, Mary Contrary, "there are a few wrinkles that we would need to iron out. Namely, there's nowhere for six and a half billion people to stay while on the island, and transport links would struggle to transport that many people here. Plus, some people probably can't come, as they are in hospital."
