Kyle, Texas, recently hosted the "Gathering of the Kyles" in an attempt to break the record for the most people with the same first name together at the same time in the same place.
Their promotional video almost makes me wish my name was Kyle so I could have gone.
Because my name isn't Kyle, only 1,490 Kyles descended on the city.
A spokesperson for the city of Kyle said,
"We are so grateful to the hundreds of Kyles that attended the Kyle Fair A Tex-Travaganza to participate in this world record attempt. Kyles from all over the country answered the call, with Kyles from 49 of the 50 states, including Hawaii and Alaska, attending the Gathering of the Kyles – the majority of which came from all reaches of Texas."
"We thank the many Kyles that turned out for this event and were blown away by their enthusiasm and camaraderie in the City of Kyle's fourth and most successful attempt at this record."
That's right this was the Kyles' fourth attempt at the record.
Their fourth failed attempt.
Why do the Kyles continue to fail in their quest for multitudinous dominance?
Behold the awesome numbers of the Ivans!
While the 1,490 Kyles were out having fun at the Kyle fair, 2,325 Ivans in Kupres, Bosnia, were lined up in disciplined rows chanting in unison.
I haven't seen that level of discipline in an Ivan since Ivan Drago fought Rocky Balboa.
Not surprisingly the Ivans have held the record since 2017.
Sorry, Kyle, the Ivans have you.
