Mr Xishun shakes hands with Mr Ping Ping

While Mr Xishun, 56, towers above everyone at an astonishing 7.9ft, 19-year-old Mr Pingping is a mere 2.4ft high.

Mr. Ping Ping? :howler: :howler: :howler:

:banana: :rofl:

I don’t want to get off topic, but I just wanted to let you all know that America is NOT numero uno when it comes to having the most tall people in the world.

Pingping is a great name. btw, but he’s still too tall.

I’m still a tall female at 5’9" tall.

I got three inches on you. :slight_smile:

Thats what she said.

My granddaughter is 5’10"; her dad is 6’ 6 1/2".

My neighbor’s youngest son (22 years old?) is 6’8" tall. His older brother is 6’5" tall. Their father is 6’3" tall. And their mother, who is an Arab (and Christian BTW) lady from Egypt, is 5’9" (kind of tall for a middle-eastern women).

Both of their sons are studying theology in religious colleges to become ministers. Beware of the 6’8" preacher standing in the pulpit.
