Syracuse's Byron Schlenker breaks the Guinness World Record for the World's Widest Tongue.

“Gee, I wonder how wide my tongue is?” Byron Schlenker wondered to his eighth-grade daughter, Emily, on a ride home from the Onondaga Free Library in Syracuse. Along with them was the 2012 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Emily had gotten the book for a class assignment, and while flipping through it Schlenker had happened upon the page with the "World’s Widest Tongue" category.
