Cute dog. Good luck to this woman. It seems like she is putting forth quite an effort to get in the Guinness records.

Dreads? Eck! I guess she doesn’t have any thralls to help comb her hair at night.

If she doesn’t have the energy to wash her hair I can’t for the life of me think she has the energy to support herself.

That dog looks like a walking mop! I feel like sticking a pole up its hind-end and scrubbing the floor with it.

Why one long rat tail? I wonder why she didn’t grow it all the same length.

[Pedestrians look at Mohammed Rashid, a 62-year-old Turk, who displays his moustache at the Corniche walkway in Beirut, Lebanon. Rashid said his 1.6-meter-long moustache placed him in Guinness Book as the man with the world's longest moustache. Rashid, an architect, said he has not cut his moustache for about 10 years. He charges US $5 for anyone who wants to take a souvenir picture with him. Rashid, who is touring the world, said he uses the money to cover expenses of the trip.]

"WWII civilians shave the head of a young woman as punishment for wartime collaboration, Montélimar, August 29, 1944."
