USC Student Becomes Local Drinking Hero

Tiffany Whitlock, 21, of Columbia has become a local hero after successfully out-drinking touring Irish punk band.

In what has quickly become known as The Guinness Chronicle, Whitlock drank 87 Guinness stout beers in a record 32 minutes. The band members altogether drank 25 beers in that same length of time before passing out.

Channel 23 News sought an interview with Whitlock afterward, but she could not be located. The doorman informed us that she had already stumbled out muttering something about a senior seminar.

More on this story as it develops.
