New Jersey Man Sets New World Record For Folding Pizza Boxes

Did you know that speed-folding pizza boxes was a sport? Neither did I, until today. But then I learned about Randy DeGregorio, a delivery driver for Mezza Luna Pizza in Manalapan, New Jersey, who recently set the new world record by folding 18 pizza boxes in one minute, besting the old record of 14, set a little more than a year ago by Vanoni Alessandro of Brescia, Italy.

(The record isn't official yet because it hasn't been certified by Guinness, but DeGregorio has submitted his paperwork and evidence.)

DeGregorio, a five-year delivery veteran, discovered his talent for speed-folding by accident. "Over time, when it's slow, there's no deliveries," DeGregorio told News12. "You kind of compete with other drivers and say who can fold them the fastest. And over time, I started to realize that, hey, I'm pretty good at this." When he discovered that there was a world record, he decided to go for it.

"So glad it's over and I finally got it," he told News12. Guinness should let him know he's official in a few months.
