Have you heard about some of the latest additions to the 2017 Guinness Book of World Records?

Bernd Schmidt of Germany can effortlessly fit a double patty cheeseburger in his mouth—his gape can open 3.5 inches wide! Think that news is hard to swallow? Consider that Schmidt beat out the previous record-holder by four millimetres. Yikes!



Another new Guinness addition is 67-year-old Charlotte Guttenberg of Melbourne, Florida, who now holds the record of Most Tattooed Senior Citizen. A whopping 91.5 per cent of her body is covered in ink. She’s literally a walking piece of art!



And then there’s Lizzy, the world’s tallest female dog. She lives with her owner Greg Sample in Alva, Florida, and is seven-years-old. Lizzy measures in at 37.96 inches in height. You have to see it to believe it!
