German schoolgirl Annika Irmler has licked her way into the Guinness Book of Records with her whopping seven centimetre tongue.
"My friends always said I had an incredibly long tongue - I could make lots of money with it one day," said Annika.
Don’t tell me that that quote passed unremarked in the copy editor’s crypt.
By my reckoning, that girl turns sweet sixteen this year. Time for a “Where are they now?”-style follow-up, surely? Earn your licence fees for once, you sad lefty pervos…
The painfully naïve Ms Irmler struts her stuff, yesterday. I bet she regrets that quote now.
