The KISS frontman doesn't have the world's longest tongue... he doesn't even have the longest tongue in America.
The latter distinction belongs to actor Nick Afanasiev, who sports a 3.5-inch licker, making it the country's longest male tongue.
And -- Believe It or Not! -- that's not even the longest tongue in the U.S. -- Houston student Chanel Tapper has one that measures 3.8 inches long, a tongue that falls short of the world record of 3.8 inches, held by Stephen Taylor of the U.K.
I'm sure there's a Jonah Falcon joke in here somewhere... but this being a family-friendly site (most of the time) I don't want to make it.
Get an uncomfortably close look at Afanasiev's tongue -- as well as other incredibly bizarre bodies, like a woman with 19-foot-long hair and a man who can send 200,000 volts shooting through his body -- in my special Ripley's photo collection, The Bizarre Body.
