Chris “The Dutchess” Walton has 5-foot fingernails which snagged her Guinness’s World Record and a whole lot of inconvenience. She appeared last night on E!’s new talk show Good Work to tell host RuPaul about cultivating and carting around all that keratin.

Ru had Walton perform a number of daily tasks whose ease those of us without 5-foot fingernails probably take for granted. Walton opened a can of soda (using a key for assistance), texted (gibberish using her knuckle), and unwrapped a piece of gum and put it in Ru’s mouth. She was as good-humored as you’d hope (if we can’t laugh at our debilitating beauty choices, what can we laugh at?), although she seemed relieved when Ru’s question about how she wipes herself turned out to be a joke.

If you are curious about that, though, allow me to introduce you to Jazz, who appeared on TLC’s My Strange Addiction in 2011. Jazz’s nails weren’t record-holding (her longest was 22 inches), but she loved them like her children nonetheless. They seemed to get more in her way than Walton’s do, but at least she was more candid about how she gets busy.
