Wax Statue of British Man With the World’s Longest Nose Cracks Up The Internet
According to Daily Star, he lived in the 18th century and was born in Yorkshire, England back in 1730. Thomas Wadhouse performed in various circus sideshows during the mid-18th century.
Did you know about Thomas Wadhouse – the man with the longest nose in the world? A Twitter page, famous for sharing memes, recently shared the story of Thomas Wadhouse, an English circus performer who rose to fame for having the world’s longest nose. According to Daily Star, he lived in the 18th century and was born in Yorkshire, England back in 1730. Thomas Wadhouse performed in various circus sideshows during the mid-18th century. As per the report, the measurement of his nose was allegedly about 7.5 inches (19 centimetres) long.
If the report is to be believed, then Wadhouse appeared to be intellectually disabled as many referred to him as ‘an idiot’. This was seemingly due to his unusual facial condition. However, besides his strange physical appearance, nothing much is known about Wadhouse’s personal life. But the Guinness World Records posthumously awarded him the title of ‘World’s Largest Nose.’ The circus performer passed away around 1780 in Yorkshire when he was allegedly 50 or 52 years of age.
As soon as the photo of Thomas Wadhouse’s wax statue surfaced online, it left the internet in splits. While a user said, it reminded them of a tengu mask, “Anyone else thinks it just looks like a tengu mask.”
Another made a hilarious Dwanye John reference, “It’s been historically documented that he was, in fact, the only one who *could* smell what The Rock was cooking.”
Meanwhile, a section of the internet shared hilarious anecdotes about his smelling abilities, “He could literally smell a scam from a mile away,” said one.
