Longest Legged Woman in the world meets shortest man in the world

on the steps of Trafalgar Square in London recently for the launch of the 2009 edition of the Guinness World Records book. They are seen here in this video with the Editor asserting that the book is meant to serve as an educational tool rather than a book about the freaks of the world.

The subjects are Pingping, 20, from Inner Mongolia, is just 74.61cm tall (2'5.37"), a result of his being born with a condition known as primordial dwarfism; and Pankratova, a 36-year-old estate agent from Volvograd, Russia, boasts a height of 1.96 metres (6'4"), with her legs alone measuring 132cm (52").

Pingping was earlier documented here with the then Worlds tallest man who was later usurped by an even taller man from the Ukraine. The book hints that there are shorter men then Pingping except that he is the shortest that can walk.

Oh no,
The latest edition of the book lists pop star Britney Spears as the most-searched person on the Internet and the television show "Lost" as the most-downloaded show of all time.
