World's Largest Hair Ball

Henry Coffer has been cutting hair at his barber shop for fifty years. That in itself is not weird, but Henry has saved all the hair he has cut, and is now vying to get into the Guinnes Book of World Record for world's largest ball of hair!

Years ago a customer asked barber Henry Coffer to save the hair he swept up from his shop floor. The man, a farmer, spread it around his watermelon patch to keep coyotes out.

Henry kept saving the hair cuttings even after the farmer stopped raising melons. The hair collection grew daily, weekly, yearly until today. Ask Henry Coffer how much hair he's cut over the years and he points to a huge hairball that fills most of the bed of his pickup truck.

The hair ball is now 167 pounds, and growing every day as Henry keeps on adding hair to it: Link (with video)
