Have You Seen This? Worlds highest bungee jump cookie dunk
Theres more than one way to dip a cookie into a mug of tea, but its a rare man who uses a bungee jump to do it. - photo by Martha Ostergar

BERKSHIRE, United Kingdom As the old saying goes, theres more than one way to dunk a cookie.

OK, so thats not how the saying goes. However, it is a bit nicer than the cat version, and the cat version doesnt give me a cute introduction to this video. Plus the whole idea of theres more than one way to dunk a cookie is necessary for this Guinness World Record-breaking video even to exist. But I digress.

Simon Berry, 24, decided that his calling in life was to perform the highest bungee jump in the world that ends with perfectly dunking a chocolate hobnob biscuit (or cookie to us Yanks) into a mug of tea at the full extension of the jump.

Spoiler alert: he did it. He jumped 240 feet 10 inches to break the previous record of 198 feet 8 inches, according to the Guinness World Records website. The difference is he does it with the grace and aplomb (and perhaps even a raised pinky) that is required when dipping cookies, donuts, biscotti and more into hot beverages. In fact, he spilled less hot beverage than I do when I sit still and try to dunk something.

It really is an impressive watch, and its probably the most British way to thrill seek that Ive ever seen.
