Norris and Ross McWhirter Trivia Introduction

About Norris and Ross McWhirter the trivia twins, a short history and biography of the duo.


The fabulous McWhirter twins, Norris and Ross--both graduated from Oxford and served in the British Navy, both worked for the BBC as TV commentators, both married and had 2 children--have succeeded Robert Ripley as the leading curators of the unbelievable. They conceived and wrote the Guinness Book of World Records, a phenomenon of the publishing world that had sold millions of copies in successive editions. Instead of picking their own favorite oddities, the McWhirters suggested several of their "entries which people seem to enjoy" most, and invited the Almanac editors to make the remainder of the selections.
