There Is A New World's Shortest Man; Say Hi To 23.6-Inch Junrey, Everybody

This is an 18 year-old. We have to admit that we're a little baffled. He's from the Philippines, too, so you know it's only a matter of time before he fights Manny Pacquiao on national television while literally everyone in the nation watches.

Here's CNN's report:

Junrey Balawing of Sindangan in the southern Philippines is 23.6 inches (60cm) tall, making him nearly three inches shorter than the previous record holder, Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal.
Balawing was born a normal size, his family said, and they did not notice anything unusual about him until he was about 4 years old and his peers grew more than he did.
He has not grown since his first birthday, his parents told Guinness. [...]
He does not have a girlfriend, he told Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday: "You fool!" he chides in his squeaky high-pitched voice, "Don't even ask!"


Oh, but Junrey's on the market now. Is there any phrase more oozing with sex appeal than "squeaky high-pitched voice?"
