The World’s Fastest-Talking Woman Will Impress You But Also Stress You Out

Watch here as she reads 'The Three Little Pigs' in 15 seconds flat

Fran Capo has held the Guinness World Record for the fastest-talking female for more than two decades. On average, she can spit out 11 words a second.

Capo, who’s from New York City (obviously), has recorded a new video to remind us all just how quickly she can spew out words. Watch here as she recites “The Three Little Pigs” in a breezy 15 seconds, but let us warn you: this will stress you out in a major way. Be sure to take plenty of deep breaths.
