Colourful wedding ceremony- Boa is nicknamed Xi Shun or “The Mast”

He had been searching for love for about a decade when he came across sales clerk Xia Shujun, the two had only spent one month together before they decided to get hitched.

Bao Xishu, a herdsman, is a huge celebrity in China, and has travelled to various parts of the world to be greeted with rock-star like crowds. But he isn’t just famous for his height.

Last year authorities in his homeland called him up to achieve something only a superhero could do, using his 1.06 meter long arms to reach into the stomachs of two dolphins who were dieing after they swallowed plastic.

The wedding was attended by hundreds of people and sponsored by more than a dozen companies hoping to cash in on the attention. Those new found capitalist Chinese sure know how to get in on the act.

At 29 Bao’s new wife stands at 1.68 meters (5ft 6) and at 29 is half her husbands age.

Xia said she was madly in love.

“You need to have feelings for someone to be in love. Even if he is a big shot, you can’t love him without feelings,” Xia said.

Mnaaa, makes you all warm and fuzzy inside….

Superhero Bao?
