Bloke pushes his eyes nearly 2cm out of sockets for world record in freaky act

A bloke who can pop his eyes nearly 2cm out of their sockets is the holder of one of the weirdest world records.

And the man who has claimed the odd title says he’s so happy about his achievement that he can’t describe it.

Sidney de Carvalho Mesquita, from Brazil, can push his eyes out of their sockets by 1.8cm due to a rare condition he has that’s called voluntary globe luxation.

He discovered his strange talent when he was a kid, as a nine-year-old pulling faces in front of a mirror, reports The Sun.

And his weird looks mean he’s able to get work impersonating the Addams Family’s Uncle Fester.

“I have no words to describe so much happiness – pure excitement mixed with elation and ecstasy,” he said.

“A dream come true, opening doors for my work to be even more recognised.

“Having bulging eyes is really an incredible human achievement.”

When Sidney pops his eyes he loses his vision, but that doesn’t seem to bother him.

It’s like “letting go of part of my body”, he said.

In another bizarre Guinness World Record that was set recently, a woman clinched the title for eating the most chicken feet in one minute.

Vuyolwethu Simanile, of South Africa, managed to chomp through a whopping 4.26 ounces (121g) of feet in 60 seconds to accomplish the impressive feat.

Chicken feet are regarded as a delicacy in parts of South-East Asia.

Vuyolwethu beat away the challenges of four other foot-eaters during the weird contest.

Each participant was given 300g of chicken feet in a bowl, with competitors allowed to eat only one foot at a time.

The contestants took different approaches – some tried to wolf the feet down while others opted for more measured and strategic tactics.

Vuyolwethu’s approach was said to be quiet and unassuming.
