Loads of perfectly healthy people have strange abnormalities on their bodies.
One of my friends barely has thumbs but that's just cos she's got weird thumbs, there's no medical reason for it. Another of my friends can use his arms like skipping ropes.
It's weird but it's just a party trick. I'm 100% sure anyone reading this will either have one of their own or know someone with something similar.
However, this 20-year-old girl is so sure she has the longest tongue in the world, she plans on getting it verified and into the World Record Books.
Gerkary Bracho Blequett can touch her elbow, her ear lobe and her eyes by stretching out her tongue. Gene Simmonds would be proud.
Gerkary, from Florida, has since started a YouTube channel where she has managed to amass one million views of her doing crazy shit with her tongue.
But her talent comes with the price of online trolling...

She said: "People's reactions are different, some people react like, 'that's nasty', some people react like, 'woah I wanna see it again', and some people just get scared.
"I don't mind, I don't mind getting negative reaction. There's different people and they have their views."
She's now also managed to get a vast online following on Instagram.
Gerkary would need to have an official measurement of her tongue from tip to closed top lip to knock off the current record holder, Nick Stoeberl, whose tongue measures 3.97 inches.
Judging by that video, she shouldn't have too many problems.
