British college student Rhiannon Brooksbank-Jones, 19, recently had her tongue surgically lengthened just so she could better pronounce the Korean letter “L.”

Foot nipple makes
The first published instance of a woman’s nipple appearing on the sole of her foot was noted in a 2006 report in the journal Dermatology and reprised in a series of U.S. and British press reports in July.

Her primary job, the vintner told Melbourne’s Herald Sun, is to sniff out tainted corks during the bottling process.
