OMG! 70 videos

Meet the ‘Gobfather’! That’s right, New Yorker Byron Schlenker is going to make you an offer you can’t refuse – ‘Want to see my tongue?!’

For Byron boasts the world’s widest tongue – measuring a whopping 8.6cm wide. The damage he could do with that! But Byron’s proud wife says they ‘try to keep it clean’ when it comes to discussing the super-tongue and its potential. For context, it’s 2cm wider than an iPhone 6!


What’s more, tremendous tongues run in Byron’s family, as his daughter Emily is the proud possessor of  a 7.3cm wide tongue, making it the widest female tongue in the world.

The father-and-daughter tongue team first learnt just how prodigious their pokers were when Byron was helping Emily with a school project and picked up a copy of the Guinness Book of World Records. He has since been crowned by the organisation, making him a bit of a celeb in his hometown of Syracuse, New York.

Check out the video above, to see how people react to seeing the Schlenkers’ world’s widest tongues.
