Hip and Thigh: Smiting Theological Philistines with a Great Slaughter. Judges 15:8

I am not an animal: I am a human being....

Woman claws her way to world record.

Lee Redmond, who bears a striking resemblance to a 60s era Star Trek alien or one of the space creature from out of Jabba the Hut's palace in Return of the Jedi, has recently become the world's record holder for the world's longest finger nails.

Who would want to live like this? Is she not afraid of gouging out an eye?

My favorite quote from the article:

But the extraordinarily long fingernails are a sight so bizarre, many feel they have to look away - and even Mrs Redmond admits her unsightly nails terrify children.

Terrify children? You think?

There is a video that attends the article featuring other long nailed people, like the woman with toenails so long, she could tear open a termite mound. It is quite the curiosity to watch, in the side show sort of way.

Is it even possible for these people to ever wash their hands-- I would guess that it is so difficult and time consuming that people like her don't even bother.

Hand Wipes?

Hand wipes may help some, but I'd wager she would have difficulty opening the package.

What about, say, going to the bathroom. Think of the nasty stuff under those nails!

Freddy. You beat me to it. I just posted on the same thing. It just goes to show that you should always consult the Mighty Hip & Thigh before posting.

Speaking of which, you've earned a blog promotion...
