Some super fancy restaurants offer meals with a seemingly absurd amount of courses. They may not be exactly 29 courses but that isn't out of the ballpark. Yes, the portions are tiny, they generally cost in the hundreds of dollars or more per person range and they are served individually with a table clearing between each one. It is an extravagant social/culinary event that generally takes multiple hours. Almost any adult can eat about 29 courses if they are small enough and spread out over enough time. Many of them are only a few bites.

Here are some contemporary examples. They are generally called "tasting menus" these days.
