World's hairiest girl

An eleven-year-old from Bangkok has received the coveted title of "world's hairiest girl".

Most eleven year old girls are proud of full heads of hair. For Supatra Sasuphan of Bangkok, Thailand, however, that hasn't until recently been the case. Sasuphan suffers (or benefits) from a genetic disorder that produces excessive hair growth on her back, legs, arms and - most noticably - face. Classmates would make often make fun of the child, calling her "monkey face" and "wolf girl". Fortunately the tables were turned when she was named by Guiness World Records as the World's Hairiest Girl. "I'm very happy to be in the Guinness World Records! A lot of people have to do a lot to get in. All I did was answer a few questions and then they gave it to me," said Sasuphan. She also reports that the bullying has subsided and her new title has made her "extremely popular at school."
