Woman earns Guinness World Record for unusual tongue

That's unusual, right?

It stands to reason that every record that the Guinness World Records hands out is for something extraordinary.

"An Oregon woman earned a Guinness World Record for her unusually sized tongue, which has a circumference of 5.21 inches." (UPI)

That's 13.24cm!

In case you were wondering how someone might know that there is such a category, Jenny DuVander shared some details on how she made the discovery. 

After reading the Guinness World Records 2023, she found out that there was a category for the largest tongue circumference. 

She always knew that she had a large tongue, but after measuring it and getting an official measurement from her dentist, she knew there was a good chance she could break a record. 

"My son, Evan, loves Guinness World Records and pores through the hardcover books every year. My record is definitely inspired by his love of facts and human abilities," DuVander said. (UPI)
