Joel Waul, 28, leans on his rubber band ball Oct. 23 at his home in Lauderhill, Fla. Waul, who works nights restocking a Gap clothing store, spent the last six years stretching rubber bands into the ball shape. Guinness World Records has declared it the world’s largest rubber band ball. On Thursday, a team from Ripley’s Believe it or Not hauled the 6-foot, 7-inch tall, 9,032-pound behemoth away on a large, flatbed truck. It will eventually be displayed in a museum.
