A Lebanese woman found 26 pearls in a single oyster and a) made international headlines and b) is thinking of submitting her discovery to the Guinness Book of World Records.

NEWSWIRE—A woman working in a restaurant found 26 pearls in an oyster she was preparing. She hopes to be in the Guinness Book of Records.

If you find in shellfish cloister
The housing of some selfish oyster,
Excavate, but don’t be reckless:
Twenty-six would string a necklace.
The bivalve that for movement, swam
Could leave you happy as a clam.
Light verse, ripped from the headlines
