It’s about it

  • Thomas Wedders may have had the longest nose of all time.

  • The Englishman has been dead for over 240 years.

  • Currently, the longest nose of a living person measures 8.8 centimeters.

There are all kinds of unusual world records recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for the human body. From the tallest to the smallest, the person with the longest mustache to the largest legs, Guinness World Records has categories in almost every category imaginable.

The record holder was a circus performer

Have you ever wondered who holds the record for the longest nose? It actually belongs to a man who was an English circus performer who lived in the 18th century. Thomas Wedders, also known as Thomas Wadhouse, was posthumously recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for his nose measuring an incredible 19 centimeters, e.g. The server Today.at informed.

A Twitter page called “Historic Vids” posted the man’s story along with a photo of a wax replica of his head kept at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum. “There are historical reports that Thomas Wedders, who lived in England in the 1870s and was a member of the circus, had a 19 cm long nose,” says the Guinness World Records website.

“An Idiot Died”

Apart from his appearances in circus acts, not much is known about Wedders’ life, as the Yorkshireman is believed to have died aged 50 in his birthplace. However, he does not seem to have been particularly popular with his contemporaries: Two authors of “Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine” describe Wedders as follows: “Either his chin was too weak, or his forehead too low, or nature took it. the task spent so much on giving this prodigy a nose that she forgot to give him a brain; or perhaps the nose replaced this last good. In any case, this Yorkshireman died, nose and tail, in a state of mind that can best be described as idiocy.”

Mehmet Ozyurek from Turkey currently holds the record for the longest living nose. His nose measures 8.8 centimeters and was verified on November 13, 2021.
