Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan measure their tongues on live television

During their chat session on "Live with Kelly and Michael" on Sept. 10, Michael Strahan mentioned that Steven Taylor is a British man who claims to have the world’s longest tongue at 3.6 inches, and he believes it grows every time he sticks it out.

In the midst of the conversation, Kelly Ripa said she thought Strahan had a long tongue as well. They just so happened to have a tape measure available, and you guessed it. Ripa told Strahan to stick out his tongue, and he did.

She measured it to be 4 inches long (which is longer than the British man's tongue). That means Strahan's tongue beats the world's record. Kelly wasn’t sure where to measure; so that might not be accurate.

While still holding the tape measure, Ripa couldn't resist. She stuck out her own tongue and measured it to be only 2 inches long. However, Michael said she didn't stick it out that far.
