Longest Ear Hair in the World

Ear, this lug hair’s a record

Published: Today
rigTeaserImage

A GROCER has had his EAR HAIR recognised as the longest in the world.

Proud Radhakant Bajpai, 50, has dense tufts sprouting to an incredible 5.2in (13.2cm) at their longest point.

The astonishing length was confirmed for the Guinness Book of Records by medical examiner Dr R P Gupta.

Together, Bajpai’s ear tufts measure almost 9.8in (25cm).

Amazingly, they are long enough for two small ponytails.

He uses a special shampoo and has stopped wearing rings and necklaces so he does not damage his luxuriant lug-whiskers.

The feat ranks as one of the weirdest in this year’s edition of the Guinness book.

But Mr Bajpai, of Naya Ganj in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, said he wished people would take it all more seriously.

He added: “Making it to Guinness World Records is indeed a special occasion for me and my family. God has been very kind to me.”




Why in the world would you want to have this record? That is disgusting, I would not even want to be near this guy. That ear hair is scary. The funniest thing about this article is the last paragraph, where the guy says how special this is to him, and that god was kind to him.

I'd be more impressed if they grew their ear hair longer and used it for a comb-over.

Why is hair so great when it's growing from the top of one's head, but once it's location is displaced by just a few inches (be it the ear, the neck or the back) it becomes the most disgusting thing in the world?

Reminds me of a guy (of Asian/Indian descent, I think) I saw in downtown Vegas years ago that had these 2 long-ass hairs growing out of a mole on his cheek....must've been 4-5 inches long. BLECH.
