Icon220 World's shortest man

Trafalgar Square routinely serves as a stage for mimes, jugglers and other acts, but the tourist attraction drew an exceptionally curious crowd when the shortest man who can walk met the woman with the longest legs.

I can relate to this. Not because I'm leggy, but because I'm fat.

Icon07 Nepalese man, 72, claims to be world's shortest

Dangi says he's only 22 inches (56 centimeters) tall — about the size of a toddler ...
What's so impressive about that? I've seen toddlers!
