Mariam Amash Is World’s Oldest Living Person

amash-old.pngMRS Mariam Amash claims she was born 120 years ago.

The Guinness Book of Records currently lists 114-year-old Edna Parker of Shelbyville, Indiana, as holding the title.

Mrs Amash live in Jisr az-Zarqa, northern Israel.

Says she: “Yes, I am the oldest person in the world. I eat, I drink, and I take showers. I hope to keep going for another 10 years.”

Mrs Amash’s claim has yet to be substantiated. The Anorak notes that Rachel Welch, star of a new U.S. sitcom, Welcome to the Captain, is 67.

Whether that is an average of her parts or her true age remains to be confirmed…
