Joseph Joe Rollino was a son of Italilan immigrants and during the best days of his career he managed to move more than 3200 pounds using his back, as a part of the “World’s strongest man” movie back in the 1920’s, where he actually dubbed himself! Aside from being a weightlifter and a decorated WW2 veteran, Rollino liked to perform various feats of strength, including nail bending with his mouth as well as coins bending using nothing but his powerful grip.
Despite the fact he was only 5’5″ with less than 150 pounds of flesh and muscle, Joe had a strength of someone twice his size. How else could you explain the 635 pounds lift with one finger or the 450 pounds lift using his teeth?
It is not quite clear if he was born in 1905 or 1916, but he unfortunately died in 2010, after being hit by a minibus. His friends and family claimed he could still bend quarters with his teeth, so who knows how long would he be able to enjoy life if it wasn’t for this tragic accident.
