Englishman Swallows Nose to Pull World’s Ugliest Face, 1934

The man with the India rubber face is T. Cox, a farmer of Yarnton, England. He challenges anyone in the. world to pull an uglier face than he can. So limber are his facial muscles that he can do just about everything but tie his cheeks into a knot.

Cox is able, by drawing up his lower jaw, puffing out his cheeks, and raising his lips up over his nose, to give the impression of having swallowed his nose.

No “bogeyman” is needed in this little town, for he can scare even the bravest of the little tots into eating their spinach.
