Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz is the longest German word (although, since German allows to mash-up words together, words in German could be infinitely long, you should see 999) and is part of the name of a law regarding the labeling of beef.(Rinderkennzeichnungs- und Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz it's the whole name)
The name of the protein titin, on the other hand, has 189,819 letters, making it the largest word in any language, but chemical compounds get written by their formula, so no candy.

So I'm guessing everyone has seen the Betty White Sniker's commercial she did for the Super Bowl which, you could say, re-launched her career and brought up this Betty White Madness that has her going around doing interviews, appearances on several Talk Shows and ended up with an offer to host SNL on may [that was thanks to a facebook petition joined by more than 500,000 people].
Betty White is so adorable and she looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth and she's quite funny, to sum it up: everyone's perfect grandma. Which makes this appearance on Ellen even funnier...or slightly disturbing.
