Can I get a BIG congratulations for the world’s tallest man and his new wife?
Inner Mongolian herdsman Bao Xishun measures in at seven-foot nine and once saved two dolphins lives by pulling debris out of their tummies. Twenty-eight-year-old Xia Shujian measures in at five-foot-six and works as a sales attendant. Together, they fight crime. No, wait, that’s not right. They probably spend most of their time doing neck stretches.
The Beijing news reports:
Xishum advertised his wishes to get married around the world to possible bride-to-be. “After a long and careful selection, the effort has been finally paid off,” [Xishum said]. Even though advertisements for his marriage propositions were sent round the world, his 28-year-old bride is from his hometown of Chifeng.
Not the way I’d go about gettin’ hitched, but different strokes and all that. I hope they have a long, happy marriage and conceive many long-limbed children.
