Summary: Lois is in the Guinness Book of World Records, and whoever put her there is going to pay.

"I want to know who is responsible for this!"

Lois Lane had been closeted with two men in suits for the past two hours, and now that they had left, she was in a rage.

"What's going on, sweetheart?" Perry was the only one who would have spoken to Lois at a moment like this, other than maybe Clark. Clark, however, was notably absent.

"I've just been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most often kidnapped person!"

Lois was so angry that her face was red. "I'll be a laughingstock. If I ever get a hold of the person who called them, I'll…"

"Well…honey…it's not like you haven't been tied up a time or two…"


Clark winced from his seat in Ye Olde Irish Pub, a half a mile away. The firestorm that had just ignited in Lois Lane would likely take a while to burn itself out. It might be better to take a long lunch.

"Geoffrey." He smiled up at his friend from England. "That didn't take long." His friend set two mugs of Guinness on the table before sitting down. "Thanks. Let's take our time about ordering."

"Yer partner gonna be angry, eh."

Clark shrugged helplessly. "How was I to know you worked for the Guinness Book of World Records when we spoke last month? It was the first time we had spoken to each other in five years!"

"You didn't think I'd take you serious either when you said there ought to be a kidnapping catagory." Pete smirked. "Your partner wasn't the only one in the running, you know. There was this pretty FBI agent in Washington DC that trailed her by only 5 attempts."

Clark stared at the table morosely. Maybe it would be best to take the afternoon off.
