    Default World's tallest man ties knot

    This guy belongs in a Dave video...

    Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9-inch herdsman from Inner Mongolia, marries, report says
    Guinness World Records confirmed Bao as world's tallest man last year
    Bao's bride, 28, is half his age; Xia Shujian is 5 feet 6 inches tall


    BEIJING, China (AP) -- After searching high and low, the world's tallest man has married a woman two-thirds his height, a Chinese newspaper reported Wednesday.

    Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9-inch (2.36-meter) herdsman from Inner Mongolia, married saleswoman Xia Shujian, who was 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 meters) tall, several days ago, the Beijing New reported.

    Bao's 28-year-old bride is half his age and hailed from his hometown of Chifeng, even though marriage advertisements were sent around the world, it said.

    "After a long and careful selection, the effort has been finally paid off," the newspaper said.

    Bao was confirmed last year by the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest person.

    Bao was in the news in December after he used his long arms to save two dolphins by pulling out plastic from their stomachs.

    The dolphins got sick after nibbling on plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province.

    Attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because the dolphins' stomachs contracted in response to the instruments, Chinese media reported.
