You know that here at SWTCTW, we love the bizarre. We practically live for it. So this picture naturally caught my eye. Meet Svetlana Pankratova, the Russian woman with the world’s longest legs. Her legs measure 52 inches long. Um that’s over FOUR FEET LONG. Wowza.
And no, she didn’t just give birth standing up to a tiny well-dressed baby, that’s He Pingping, the world’s smallest man. He is 2 feet and 5.37 inches tall. The odd couple met up at Trafalgar Square for a fairly creepy photoshoot for the 2009 Guinness Book of World Records.
He Pingping runs a restaurant back home in China (or Mongolia, I have conflicting reports) and, as it turns out, is a bit of a romantic. When asked about his gf (she’s regular sized, I know you were dying to know), he said, “I always miss her when I’m not with her.” AWWWWWWWW! He Pingping!
Other records: Britney Spears as the most-searched person on the Internet and “Lost” as the most-downloaded show of all time.
