Does This Teen Have the Longest Tongue in the World?! (VIDEO)

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie pop? In the case of Michigan teen Adrianne Lewis, probably not very many at all: The 18-year-old is making headlines for her insanely tongue, which, in case you were wondering, is lengthy enough for her to reach her eyeball. Not that licking one's own eyeball is all that useful of a skill, but still. Exactly how long is this girl's tongue, anyway?

Lewis -- who goes by "Long Tongue Lewis" -- says her tongue is 4 inches long. See for yourself:

Naturally, Lewis wants the Guinness Book of World Records to measure it (the current record-holder, a 24-year-old from California named Nick Stoeberl, has only a 3.97 inch tongue). Sure, whynot? As parents, it's our job to tell our kids that it's okay to be different, and to celebrate their individual quirks: These unique traits are what make us special, even if they are a little ... bizarre. So, go for it, Adrianne! But to be perfectly honest, in this super-sized world, 4 inches doesn't seem like much of anything, does it? I mean, consider the many things most teens like Adrianne likely use in the course of a day that are at least that long:

1. iPhone 6

2. Red Bull can

3. Hair straigtening iron

4. Frappucino cup

5. Selfie stick

6. Energy bar

7. Drinking straw (for the Red Bull and Frappucino)

8. Headphone wires

9. Makeup brush

10. Eyeshadow palette 

Anyway, you get the idea. 4 inches, meh. This is 2015, Adrianne. If you really want to shock us, follow the lead of [fill-in-the-blank reality tv star] and get a tongue implant! Actually, don't. That's horrible advice, especially since you're only 18. Never mind! Go get a degree.

Does your kid have any super unique physical traits?
