People Who... Aren't The Height You Expected

So… who you met and gone “oh” about their surprising height?

Paul Scholes - You obviously know the guy is short because people go on about it but it was surprising to actually visualise “oh, I’m actually slightly taller than him” up close

Met The Tallest Man On Earth at a festival once. He’s full of shit.

Funily enough, this thread was inspired by a footballer.

Probably explains why he’s so tall.

Arsene Wenger. I knew he was tall but he’s very tall for an older man.

or is he just old for a taller man?

Ronald McDonald is 7 foot tall

Bruce Dickinson is very short IRL.
It was only afterwards I realised I was a fair bit shorter than myself and I’m not particularly tall.

Really? Is there an actual Ronald that the mascot was based on?

Shane “actually not very” Long?

not sure, i just googled ronald mcdonald height and that was the first result

Matt Bellamy - taller
Michael Gira - much smaller

I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat

Anna Von Hausswolff is very small

Dustin Rhodes is 6 ft 6. Expected him to be about 6ft.

In lockdown I’ve joined a new team and only ever really seen their faces. Did think what if they’re all 3ft tall when I actually meet them, which is fine obviously.
