Below you will find "funny" reactions about the news that an Ethiopian farmer claims to remember 1895 when Italy invaded Ethiopia
I think he is the real Haile Selaise!
It only seems like yesterday I painted the Mona Lisa...
If this man is 160, that wouldn't make him the oldest living human being, that would make him a dinosaur.
I used to drink with him daily...he's 59 yrs old...
I was there in 1895 and I particularly remember him NOT being there, so it can`t be true.
Just cut him in half and count the rings.
the thing is ..in ethiopia they have a calendar that is way off ours....so it 2013 here it could be 1980 there or something like that so maybe when you told him it was 2013...the thought you meant ethiopian 2013...which would make him about 160 when in reality he is probably about 45.
"When Italy invaded Ethiopia I had two wives,and my son was old enough to herd cattle ... ."
A herd of cattle in Ethiopia is what, three?
Two wives didn't kill him? NOTHING will!
Actually, he had a herd of wives and a couple cattle.
Call him tortoise !!
He's really 80 years old - the days in Ethiopia are only 12 hours long.
If he lived in the UK they'd have him working!
The candles on his birthday cake must cost a fortune !
More likely he is just the world's oldest LIAR.
When I was a kid, he was always coming round to our house to see if I wanted to play out.
More likely he remembers the second Italo¿Ethiopian War in 1935. Still make him 120 though!
Ah, the benefits of living in a society with no birth certificates and little or no official tracking of your every move - you can be whatever age you want to be!
Guys. I'm 160 too. I don't have any proof, but it's totally the truth since I say so!
Carbon dating only works on organic species that have been out of the food chain. Suffice to say, he's old but unlikely 160
More likely he remembers 1935 and not 1895 war.
I remember the plague the dark horrid days!! I am 637 years old.
Can't they tell by his teeth, presuming he's still got some.
I myself was at the birth of christ but a goat ate my birth certifcate.
