Whenever Nick Stoeberl introduces himself to someone, he’s able to tell them how old he is, where he’s from, and oh yeah, that he has the longest tongue in the world.
The Guinness World Records committee recently verified the 24-year-old from California, USA as the record holder for the world’s longest tongue.
He and his 10.1 cm (3.97 in) long tongue will be included in the new Guinness World Records 2015 book, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary.
So what are some of the upsides and downsides of having such a sizable muscular organ?
Well for one, Nick gets a lot of attention and he exclaims “I’m not only able to lick my nose, but also my elbow!”
The only downer: “I have to spend longer brushing my tongue in the morning.”
