Here's a photo of Melvin Boothe and Lee Redmond, who were the man and woman with the worlds longest fingernails. Unfortunately, Ms. Redmond, a 68 year old great-grandmother from Salt Lake City, who last cut her fingernails in 1979, tragically lost hers when she was injured in a four car pile-up in February.
This raises a few questions:
- Was she driving?
- How did she brush her teeth?
- Did the nails come in handy for raking leaves?
- How many times in thirty years did she poke herself in the eye?
- To put it delicately, (admit it, you're dying to know) did she need one of these?
