Antacid Maker Creates World's Largest Buffet

German pharma giant Bayer AG must be very proud today after the makers of Alka-Seltzer set the record for world's largest buffet at the Las Vegas Hilton today in honor of the antacid's 75th anniversary.

Because this was a brand-new world record, officials at Guinness World Records required the buffet to feature at least 500 distinct dishes. Bayer weighed in with 510 dishes, including Mongolian chicken, salmon Wellington and apple pie. If America still has any fight left in her after getting served at the World Baseball Classic, expect to see this record broken within the year.

Coming soon: the world's largest class action lawsuit for food poisoning.
