This is just frickin' neat: A 56-leaf clover. It was bred by farmer Shigeo Obara, who had previously held the Guiness World Record with an 18-leaf clover.
"I never dreamed of seeing this many leaves on a clover," Shigeo told the Associated Press. Shigeo had to decal the leaves as he counted them to avoid double-counting - wow.
Though, honestly, I'm not impressed - try counting all the leaves on a 3' mangrove sapling when its 95 degrees out with no shade. Now that is a lot of leaves to count. Right, Allie? :)
