    What's even more hilarious than this episode is the "explanation" given on the Guinness World Record's website stating:
    "We were disappointed to see the false and unfair allegations about Guinness World Records in Sunday’s episode of ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.’ 
    The piece appears to have been motivated by our decision not to participate in tonight’s show.  
    We were asked to provide a judge to officiate the so-called world record attempt for “largest cake with an image of someone falling off a horse”. 
    On the basis that it was merely an opportunity to mock one of our record-holders, we declined. It is our policy not to partake in any activities which may belittle their achievements or subject them to ridicule."
    Triggered much? 😂😂😂 #JohnOliverRocks

    "I guess we don't run a brutal enough dictatorship that meets Guinness Book of World Records' high ethical standards".
    That burn was hotter than the fire pit around which you have to do donuts to prove that you're alive.

    Dictators and megalomaniacs love being feared and don’t mind being hated, but they LOATHE being made fun of.

    "President Equus here likes horses, but do horses like him? The answer is, and this is a direct quote, is "Neigh.""
    Give whoever wrote that joke a freaking raise. That was hilarious.

    "Hello, I have a special request. A six hundred foot cake depicting a man falling off a horse."
    "Yes, you heard me right."

    What was the Guiness people thinking? They must have a terrible PR director and should he be fired. Instead of being in on the joke, now they look the like total douches they are.

    That clip at 4:10 oddly feels like a scene from The Dictator by Sasha Baron Cohen
