Flushoff a success!

The Great Cajundome Flushoff was a tremendous success. According to KLFY, "So many volunteers showed up, some had to be turned away."

The problem at hand was that the Cajundome had been left in a state of disrepair after housing refugees of Hurricane Katrina for several months. To help clean up, volunteers were asked to "flush all of the 200 toilets and urinals at almost the same time to make sure they're working right."

To pull off such a massive undertaking, Cajundome administration instituted 15-minute rounds of flushing "which sounded like an orchestra of whooshing toilets, gushing faucets and flushing urinals."

I have a feeling that doesn't even come close to a Guinness record for number of toilets flushed at one time.

You have a point there. A quick search of the Guiness site didn't turn up any related information. However, I did learn that there is a record for the longest moonwalk.
