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