A report of a particular record made me laugh and will probably amuse you, too, even though the subject is not funny & the report is not phrased in a way that is either clever or amusingly inept. How come?

A record as in an instance of the most/biggest/best (etc) of something? A music record? Something that has been recorded?

Is it at all relevant how the report was phrased?

Was it amusing because of the subject of the record? Because of who set the record? Because of what they did to achieve it? Because of what the current record is?

Was the record in some way ambiguous (albeit with a perhaps obvious correct meaning)? if so, was it the alternative interpretation that amused you? or if not, was the record itself in having been achieved inherently humourous?

Was the phrasing along the lines of: "The Most [Noun] Collection: [Size of Collection]"? "The Most [Plural Noun] [Verb]ed in [Time Period]: [Number]"? or otherwise similarly followed the "[simple summary]: [record]" structure? if not, would it still be amusing if it had?

Is the record "most somethings carried away by wind"? The thing being carried away - animals? Buildings? Many of the same type of object? Different objects?

Is the record funny because it evokes a funny image?

Does the record involve something being carried away? By wind? By a storm generally? One thing? A big thing? Is it relevant where it ends up?

Does the record parallel something else, like a proverb or a film plot?

something man-made? yes

made of plastic? glass? metal? wood? some kind of fibre? I think it's usually made of plastic

something usually found out of doors? yes on a building? unlikely a roof? possibly on a roof in a garden? unlikely
