He Pingping, RIP

From the Associated Press: ROME — The world’s shortest man has died in Italy, where he was to take part in a TV show, the program’s production company said Tuesday.

He Pingping, of China, who was 2 feet, 5.37 inches (74.6 centimeters) tall, had become a recognized figure across the world, often taking part in shows, photo shoots and other events, Guinness World Records said.

Craig Glenday, the Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, said He was “an inspiration to anyone considered different or unusual” and “showed us that, despite the challenges we face, we can still make the most out of life. For such a small man, he made a huge impact around the world.”

“From the moment I laid on eyes on him, I knew he was someone special – he had such a cheeky smile and mischievous personality, you couldn’t help but be charmed by him.

Not much more to say here. Except possibly, would you rather be the world’s smallest human or the world’s tallest?

    Smaller. It’s good for pickpocketing and looking up women’s skirts.
