This crazy story was a fan submission!

Meet Phillip Romano.

He has one of the longest tongues we’ve ever seen.


From Armonk, New York Phillip is a 21-year-old student and he sent Ripley’s this picture of his supersized tongue. One of the longest in the world! It measures an impressive 3.9 in (10 cm) from its tip to the middle of his closed lip. (Which I just learned is just one of the proper ways to measure a tongue.)


The photos featured in our latest book freak me out a little but that’s nothing compared to the crazy video we were sent. Watch it above!
