Had Reggie Bügmüncher been anywhere else on Tuesday, the world would have probably never known about the unusually named sideshow performer from Philadelphia.

A stunned Bügmüncher would take a quick snap of the scene before her and upload it to Instagram.
Within minutes, she was inundated with requests for information on what was now a breaking news story.
Having talked to a journalist from the syndicated newswire Associated Press, Bügmüncher's words and her name seen across the world.
And now that it's known there have been no serious injuries in Tuesday's incident, Reggie's name has caused something of a sensation online.
And by Wednesday morning, she was trending.
