This could qualify for Ripley's Believe It or Not?

At least Andrew Dahl wasn't wasting his time playing video games.

Instead, the 13-year-old boy from Blaine, Wash., tried to get into the Guiness World Records by inflating 213 balloons -- with his nose. And he did it one nostril at a time.

Andrew had attempted the same record in February, but his effort of 184 balloons was rejected because his father tied the balloons.

According to the Associated Press, Andrew's father, Doug Dahl, measured the balloons to make sure each was at least 20 centimeters, the minimum diameter, and his mother, Wendy Dahl, kept the tally.

At one point he asked, "Does this count as practicing my trumpet?" His mother replied, "Only if you can play that with your nose."
