The Scorpion Queen and the Centipede King
In honor of Valentine’s Day I want to bring your attention to the most awesome couple I’ve encountered in years. Meet the Scorpion Queen and the Centipede King:
Kanchana Ketkaew, 36, who set a world record in 2002 for spending 32 days in a glass cage with 3,400 scorpions, wed 29-year-old Bunthawee Siengwong — who set a Thai record for enduring 28 days with 1,000 centipedes. They married on Valentine’s Day 2006.
LOVE AT FIRST BITE: They met on a snake farm while both were trying to beat world records for cohabitation with deadly insects. I didn’t really believe in true love before… but now I think I may.
