View Full Version : Bob Dole has been robbed!

Thanks to pressures from Bob Dole's friends, Bob Dole ceased his attempt at the record over a year ago. Bob Dole was within .25" when he abandoned his quest.

SARANAC, New York (AP) -- A bushy brow landed Frank Ames in the Guinness Book of World Records, but not before a new entry was created for him.

The 43-year-old upstate New York man now holds the world record for having the longest eyebrow hair, measured just over 3 inches.

"I don't know why it grows like that; it just always has," Ames told the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh.

Ames' journey toward fame began almost two years ago when a co-worker at Bombardier Corp. noticed the lengthy brow and suggested Ames try for a record.

When Ames decided to go for it, he discovered that no such category existed. So, he called Guinness and got the rules for official recognition.

Ken Joy, a machinist at Bombardier, measured the hair in February 2004 with Plattsburgh Mayor Daniel Stewart and other city officials standing by as witnesses.

Ames' record appears in the 2006 edition of the record book, in the "Body Parts" section.

"It's crazy how much people want to know about this," Ames said Tuesday. "I've been on radio shows all day. I could build children's hospitals all across the world, and this is what I would still be known for."

Bob Dole thinks there's a fundraising opportunity buried somewhere in this quest.

Perhaps a website that chronicles the quest for the record, complete with weekly photo updates and little known facts about the care and feeding of mutant eyebrow hairs.

The truly sad part of the whole issue is that it was brought to Bob Dole's attention by his little sister, who is genuinely upset that she lost out on an opportunity to be the sister of a famous (though somewhat bizarre and oddly pathetic) person.

Well, lets face facts, since she is already related to someone who, by all accounts, is "somewhat bizarre and oddly pathetic", its only fair for her to hope that you at least become famous.

Bob Dole is sure that many of you are on pins and needles and often wake up late at night in a cold sweat and wonder, "What is the status of Bob Dole's quest for the world record eyebrow?"

Rest easy, friends. Not counting the follicle, Bob Dole has one that currently measures roughly 7.3cm.

Assuming the follicle is greater than .01cm in length, that puts Bob Dole a mere .5cm away from equalling the 7.81cm record published in the 2006 edition of the Guinness World Record Book.

Shit. That thing scared Bob Dole, and he's had to look at that in the mirror every day for the past 40 years. As a courtesy to the faint-hearted, Bob Dole resized it.

The hair is a good half-inch longer than that now. (Of course, so is every other hair from the neck up.)

I wonder if eyebrow hair is anything like normal hair, in that it occasionally needs to be trimmed to promote growth.

Of course, that would a be a risky experiment. You could lose months worth of work in one quick snip.

Evidently he didn't fill out the forms.

And it's only 75/1000ths of an inch longer, anyway. Bob Dole should have that whipped by the end of May.
