As you peruse through this list of the weirdest-looking people in the world, you understand that some people go through great lengths, and considerable physical inconvenience, just to attract attention. Some yearn to be immortalized in the history books for contorting their body in some incomprehensible form or another. Others are adhering to cultural morays of a foreign country that we can’t possibly decipher (nor would want to), while a few simply wanted to express their eccentricities on their bodies and happened to attract attention of the media.

Whatever the case may be, it has turned out some crazy results.

Here are some of the craziest and weirdest-looking people in the world, mostly courtesy of the Guiness Book of World Records.
