The ‘Guinness Book of the World’s Weirdest Whackos’ more like …

An American singer with fingernails over 3 metres long and a student with a 10cm tongue are included in the entries of the 2012 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Aevin Dugas from New Orleans, Louisiana, is included for having grown the world’s largest natural afro. The Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Lenday admitted the bookcelebrates “the weirdest and wackiest”.

Doncaster man Rob Hull, 49, is also in the book for having 571 Daleks – even though he is not a Doctor Who fan. Dalek collector Mr Hull purchased his first replica 20 years ago, and claims he became “enchanted” with them after seeing them in the shops.

The Reverend  Darrell Best, of Chicago, Illinois is a new entry to the records with the fastest wedding chapel after he converted his 1940s fire truck into a wedding chapel on wheels. The wedding chapel entitled ‘The Best Man’, allows lovers to tie the knot while they are on the road and is capable of reaching speeds of 62mph.

The new edition of the famous record book also sees a new claimant to the prestigious title of longest fingernails in the world. Christine Walton, 45, from Las Vegas, has fingernails over 3 metres long on her left hand and almost 3 metres on her right hand. “I hate all the cleaning, but I do it. And the makeup, I only wear so much,” said the singer. The previous record-holder, Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City, lost her nails in a
road traffic accident in 2009.
