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.

the reactions are just comments or remarks, they are not funny

Comment by Gettu Mamo on September 13, 2013 at 3:31am

The reactions (so called funny) would have been the opposite if the news had come from CNN or BBC or the old guy had been from Japan or U.S.

You the worst one editing such a lie.

Why not believe him? if there is man with horn in Yemen. Go google it and see, he is the same age of this man.

Comment by Dave on September 12, 2013 at 12:52pm

The man said that he lived 4 Geda cycles. If this is true, birth certificate is not necessary to know his age. One Geda cycle is 5*8=40 years.

No computer is available 160years ago just like that no brithcertificate in Ethiopia
Comment by dawit on September 12, 2013 at 11:17am
Whether he is 160 or 60 does it bring any fortune to himself or his country? .....nothing!!! They just only register him on Guiness book,that's all. We know a million pol who regeatered on Guineas and wait to get somethng but the truth is gueness collect the money by publishing the story on the book but the owner get a beautiful piece of paper says "you are certified" hahahaaa

I think that we don't have to blame this old man for what he has claimed unless we are biased. If ferenji said it, we would hail it so many times.Yes, I can recognize that absence of birth certificate by then have created these biased ideas from  Ethiopian brothers and sisters.Can we strive to find the truth? There is nothing this old man can get of telling lie. So, let's dig deep to find the truth if it is our real concern.If not, it's not an Ethiopian culture to insult  old ages.They deserve respect.Hey, the youth, let u be in your mind.Thanks

The Guinness Book of World Records authenticates the oldest man in the world who is a Japanese, 116 years old. And that's the truth.

Comment by Dave on September 11, 2013 at 11:18pm

I think you all saw his son and grand son with him. They look much much older than him. His teeth are still strong. Bus his son has no teeth and looks very tired. You never believe unless things happen abroad. You will believe when it is reported to you in English.
