Man Shows Off Bizarre Ability To Lick His Own Forehead

Ready for your daily dose of weird? Good, then stick with me and I'll show you Yagya Bahadur Katuwal, a 35-year-old man from Nepal who has the extraordinary ability to lick his own forehead.

Check it out:

Before now I daresay you've attempted to lick you own nose, you might even be able to do it...but that feat pales in comparison to this guy.

Yagya, a school bus driver, has found himself becoming a bit of a local celebrity thanks to his bizarre talent, which has spread across social media in the past few weeks.

However, he says he's been warned not to do it while he's at work for fear of the scaring the kids, which seems fair enough to me.

"Children never want to get close to me," he added. "Some even wet their pants!

"Even adults can lose consciousness when they watch me in action."

He reckons he has the world's longest tongue and believes he is the only person in the world who can lick their own forehead, so now has his eyes set on earning himself a place in the Guinness World Record books.

Speaking about his unique talent, Yagya said: "I think I look great like this - I can cover my nose with my lips, lick my forehead and make the sound of bullet bike.

"If I got to act in a horror movie, I wouldn't need makeup like other actors to scare people.

"I want to set a Guinness World Record for being able to cover my nose with my lip while licking my forehead."


Puskar Neap, who decided to video and share Yagya's party trick last month said: "He's physically and mentally fit - he discovered in the early age that he can lick his own forehead.

"He has just one tooth and that is what makes him able to do that-his skills are weird, yet amazing."

The current record holder for world's longest tongue is Nick Stoeberl from Florida in the US. Measured from the tip to the middle of the closed top lip (which is apparently the system Guinness uses) Nick's tongue is 10.1cm (3.97in) long.

He picked up the record in 2012 and says that as well as being able to lick his nose, he can also lick his elbow, a seemingly impossible task to you or I

Speaking about the downside, Nick said: "I have to spend longer brushing my tongue in the morning."

A small price to pay to be a record holder, surely?
