    Hmm. Extraordinary feat, but the first person in this category to hit their own head. People, are we cool with this category evolution?

  • "Fifty Nifty United States" works every time!

  • I agree that she should too. There are some pauses where she can easily beat this time. Lets hope she does soon!

    I agree the effort may have been there, but I think all 50 states must be clearly audible for the record to count. Jessica is clearly a star in this category - I'd love to see her submit a more clean attempt.

  • Drollman, I agree it sounds like she missed it. But after listening to it again, while she takes a breath she says New York, but it sounds like 'New or' due to the slurring.

    As my colleague bobedbird noted, she missed "New York." Sorry Jessica, but I vote this submission be denied.

  • i am proud to say, i am friends with this wonderful person.
