I KNOW I'm not the only person who loves the "Human Oddities" freakshow section in the "Guinness Book of World Records". So I'm happy to report they've added a bunch of new ones for this year's book.
• Longest Female Tongue. The prize goes to 21-year-old Chanel Tapper of Los Angeles, California, whose tongue is 3.8 inches from the tip to the top of her lip. Basically, it extends down at least an inch past her CHIN.
• Tallest Man. 28-year-old Sultan Kosen of Ankara, Turkey is the new record holder at EIGHT FEET, THREE INCHES. He was measured back in February . . . so by now, he might even be a little bit taller.
• Longest Beard, Male. Not sure why they needed to specify "male" for this . . . but the record holder is 59-year-old Sarwan Singh of Canada who has a seven foot, nine inch beard. At least two feet of it seem to drag on the ground.
• Largest Afro. Guinness has more SOUL than we realized. 36-year-old Aevin Dugas of New Orleans, Louisiana is the new record holder . . . her fro has a circumference of four feet, four inches.
