A man has broken a record for having the “world’s longest tongue”.
Praveen, from Tamil Nadu, earned a spot in India’s Book of Records after stretching his tongue to a whopping 10.8cm.
He trumped the previous record holder by 0.7cm and rubbed it in by licking his elbow!
Praveen can also stretch his nose to touch his tongue and dangle it all the way to the bottom of his chin.
He is pleased to have beaten Nick Stoeberl, from California, to win the title.
The American man held the Guinness World Record for his 10.1cm tongue since 2012 after beating Brit Stephen Taylor’s 9cm effort he set in 2002.

1. World’s biggest natural boobs
Annie Hawkins-Turner, who goes by the name Norma Stitz, won the “largest natural breasts” record in 1999.
At the time, the erotic actress’ measurements were enough to make anyone’s jaws drop.
Her underboobs spanned 09.22cm, while she had a chest-over-nipple measurement of 177.8cm.
Nowadays, the American influencer says her bust is even bigger.
She claims to have 102ZZZ-cup assets, which have helped her to rake in “millions”.
2. Widest mouth
Isaac Johnson has redefined the meaning of having a “big mouth” – with a gob so massive he can fit a can of Coke inside it.
The teenager from Minnesota, US, had previously held the Guinness World Record for having the “widest gape” until Phillip Angus managed to open his mouth 9.52cm in 2019.
But Isaac refused to be beaten so went about “training” to reclaim his title.
And he has now done just that after managing to gape his mouth to a whopping 10.175cm.
3. Longest fingernails
Lee Redmond has held the record for the longest fingernails on a human hand for 17 years.
She boasts fingernails with a combined total length of 8.65 metres (28ft 4in) – that’s about the length of a bus.
Her longest individual nail was her right thumb, which grew to 2ft 11in long.
Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday once said: "There is something quite unique about Lee’s fingernails because they were quite beautiful.”
4. World’s longest eyebrow hair
A little more subtle than the other record holders, but no less bizarre is Zheng Shusen.
He won his record in Inner Mongolia, China, in 2016.
The 81-year-old discovered that one of his extremely long eyebrow hairs measured 19.1cm.
The Chinese man says that sometimes his long eyebrow falls in his mouth when he’s eating.
To avoid this he always tucks it behind his right ear.
