Short cut

The world has a new record holder.

The world’s shortest man  is now Edward Nino Hernandez, a Colombian part time dancer who is 70 centimetres high.

Hernandez replaces the previous shortest man, the late He Pingping of China, who died in March. The news report indicates He Pingping “was 4cm (1.5in) taller”.

Hang on a minute.

The previous holder of the title world’s shortest man was TALLER than the new holder? Despite both being alive before March the world’s shortest man was taller than another man who is now judged to be the world’s shortest man? How does that work?

Any solutions to this dilemma below please.

  1. If you can come up with a valid explanation for ‘Colombian part-time dancer,’ I’ll do my best to tackle the 4 cm dilemma.

    It’s not how tall you are, it’s who you know.
