Ten Second Interview Of The Week: New World's Oldest Woman Edna Parker

On the heels of the death of Yone Minagawa in Japan earlier this week, Edna Parker of Shelbyville, Indiana has taken the honor of being the world's oldest living person. Born on April 20, 1893, Parker is 114 years old, just slightly younger than the previous Guinness entry. sat down with the new record holder for one of our famous 10 second interviews, because, quite frankly, we thought we should make it quick.

Us: Edna, what do you credit as being the secret to your longevity?

Edna: Never being named the World's Oldest Woman. I looked up all the old record holders, and they've all died!

Some honor.
