World's Longest Nipple Hair
Tyler Ing, a Western Ontario engineering student, has won a place in World Book history by growing the longest nipple hair in the world. It measures 3.5 inches long, is jet black, and by all accounts, is pretty gross looking.
"There are a few contenders on me, but that's the longest one," said Ing, 20 years old.
It's tough for me to see people growing nipple hairs as contenders.
Tyler is also a hockey player for his school (isn't everyone that goes to Western Ontario?) and apparently got harassed quite a bit from his teammates. A few of his buddies would tease and joke that he needed to get his nipple hair into the Guiness World Records, and that's exactly what he did back in 2004.
What does his girlfriend think about all of this? Well, she suggested he contact the Guiness people as well. Isn't it great to have support from the one you love? I hope she's not going for any fantasitc follicle world record too. And his parents?
Tyler said that his parents "looked at me real weird for a few minutes. Now they're proud. My mom shows the book to all her friends."
If I grew the longest nipple hair in the world, my mother would go to Border's and burn every 2006 Edition Guiness book she could find. Then she's buy me a hair trimmer.
Here are just a couple other bizarre and hairy World Records:
World's Longest Female Beard: Vivian Wheeler of Wood River, IL...This mother of three grew a beard after the death of her mother in 1990. Not sure why. I guess it's some sort of memorial for her mother??? Her beard measures 11 inches.
World's Longest Ear Hair: Radhakant Bajpai of Naya Ganj, Uttar Pradesh, India...OK, so maybe this is much more gross than a nipple hair record. His ear hair begins in the center of his ears and measures 5.2 inches! In his picture, it looks like he has a poofy mullet.
World's Hairiest Man: Yu Zhenhuan of China...This guy has hair covering 96% of his entire body...hair EVERYWHERE except for the palms of his hands and soles of his feet. The hair got so long, that it went into his ear and actually gave him partial hearing loss! Here's a number for you...he's got 41 hairs per square centimeter of his body.
Suddenly, I have this strong urge to shave....have a great weekend!
