Fingernail Lady

This story is about a tragic loss to the world of obscure world records.



Here's the photo of the lovely lady, pre-accident, with her captivating nails.

I have to give credit to my daughter for the line "Was that her goal or was she just crazy?" That was her verbatim reaction when I told her about this lady with two-foot fingernails and it made me laugh out loud. So I had to use it. Unfortunately, Daughter Stratton's delivery was much funnier than it was in the clip.

I also said that I would go to the world record of baking the world's largest cookie. I didn't get credit for that line either!
I have been waiting for this episode though, it is like my 15 minutes of fame.

Also, after thinking more about it...more questions come to mind about fingernail lady, like, how did she protect those things on a daily basis? I can't keep my fingernails from breaking when they're less than 1/8" long...
Does she eat more jello than me?

I once ate some of the worlds largest apple pie. I think that one has since been surpassed, but this was baked at the Orleans County Fair in NY State back in 1976. It was in the Guinness Book for a long time. Never thought about a cookie though. be too big to dunk...

I always thought that the record holder was a guy from the middle east or something... I wonder how great the person with the second longest fingernails must feel now.

His jubilation was short-lived. He high-fived his brother and broke four off.
