    Interesting Entries for 2011 Guinness Book of World Records


    by NTDTelevision

    Dexter, the world's smallest cow.

    Puggy, owner of the world's longest canine tongue.

    And Mehmet Ozyrek, the man with the record for the world's longest nose.

    These are some of the entries in 2011 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.

    The book sells more than three million copies a year and its popularity is hardly waning, says editor-in-chief Craig Glenday.

    [Craig Glenday, Editor-In-Chief]:
    "We get more record claims in our office now than we've ever done in our 55-year history, there's so much interest around the world, everyone's desperate to get their name in the biggest selling book in the world I guess."

    Others who have managed to lay claim to a page?

    The owners of the world's largest Smurf and Mickey Mouse collections.

    A Canadian with the world's longest beard.

    More creatures like Fluffy, the world's largest snake, measuring in at nearly 24 feet.

    And, at the same Colorado zoo, the world's oldest known living gorilla who is due to turn 55 in December.

    [Craig Glenday, Editor-In-Chief]:
    "You can do something simple like eating Smarties or Ferrero Rocher, to doing something really impressive like climbing Everest or winning an Oscar. To us, you're all part of the Guinness World Record family."

    There are even records for things you might never have thought of. Take Anastasia, for example—a Jack Russell who broke the world record for popping 100 balloons in the fastest time, a mere 44.49 seconds.
