Today In Weird: 19-Foot-Long Fingernails Are This Girl's Best Friend

I really don't know what to say that this video can't say for itself except, "ZOMGWTF THIS IS GROSS" but I'm trying not to judge. Apparently this woman is set to star on TLC's "My Strange Addiction" to show the world what it must feel like to be voluntarily handicapped.

According to the Huffington Post, Jazz Ison Sinkfield has been growing out her nails for 22 years with the longest  nail measuring in at 24 inches.
While she compared her nails to her children, saying, "I just can't stop loving my kids so how could I stop loving my nails....They are a girl's best friend [and] are precious to the heart," her husband isn't so attached. In fact, he sounds kind of bitter when he discusses her obsession, saying, "Sometimes I think she gives her nails more attention than she gives me....She can't tie her shoes. Sometimes I have to help her with her clothes. She's very slow."
