World's Tallest Man Meets World's Shortest Man
It was a match made in Guinness. The world's tallest man, 8-foot-1-inch Sultan Kosen, met the world's shortest man, 2-foot-5-inch He Pingping, at an event to launch everybody's favorite book of world records' live road show.
The ceremony was held in Istanbul, Turkey, 27-year-old Kosen's home country. The massive farm laborer, who has a condition called pituitary gigantism, told reporters, ‘I've wanted to meet Pingping ever since I was awarded the title 'tallest man.’'
Pingping, a 21-year-old from China, suffers from primordial dwarfism. He didn't say much, but did get to ride around on his new buddy's foot.
