Eye-eye! New brow hair record set

Frank Ames' long eye-brow

A 43-year-old New Yorker has set a rather gross new world record for the longest eye-brow hair.

Frank Ames of Saranac in New York earned his place in the Guinness Book of World Records with a pair of bushy brows measuring 9.6cm.

He decided to go for the title two years ago, only to discover it didn't exist. After calling officials, he set up and claimed the hairy new record.

"I don't know why it grows like that, it just always has," he told reporters.
