Too Short might need to change his name! This guy is barely bigger than a ruler and wants the World’s Shortest Man title.
A 72-year-old man in Nepal claims to be the world’s shortest man, and he may prove to be the shortest adult human in Guinness World Records’ history.
Chandra Bahadur Dangi says he is 1 foot, 10 inches tall, which would make him 1.6 inches shorter than the current official record holder, Junrey Balawing of the Philippines, and one centimeter shorter than any adult human ever documented.
Guinness officials will travel to Dangi’s village to verify his claim. Guinness posted video of Dangi on its YouTube channel.
The shortest adult human ever, according to Guinness, was Gul Mohammed, who was 1 foot, 10.4 inches tall. He died in 1997 at the age of 40.
“We intend to travel to Mr. Dangi’s village in Nepal to officially measure him and are currently making provisions for medical professionals to assist us in the verification,” a statement on the Guinness World Records website says.
Dangi has reportedly already become somewhat of a celebrity in southern Nepal, and the Guinness honor would almost certainly add to his notoriety. A previous record-holder, He Pingping of Mongolia, made a celebrated trip to New York City in 2008.
So ladies, would you hit it??? You know they say big things come in small packages.
Can’t blame this guy for trying to make the best of his situation.
