If you're keeping track lately, the title of World's Oldest person has changed hands again for the third time this year. Wikipedia can hardly keep up. The title now belongs to Yone Minagawa, 114, of Japan, following the death of American Emma Tillman, who passed away Sunday night in a Connecticut nursing home.
While certainly a dubious achievement, being the World's Oldest Person definitely has some shortcomings. Emma Tillman, also 114, only held the title for four days. And while the nursing home probably makes a nice cake for the occasion, they say stupid things like, "She has a sweet tooth, so we have to watch her, otherwise she reaches out for seconds and thirds."
Feed your face, Yone.
