16-toed Baby Born in China (genghis)

(It’s more a headline item, but I wanted to post the pic and propose a contest in the comments.)

I found this via Iowahawk who has a new gig working at Anorak, which appears to be a U.K. version of The Onion, or Cracked.com or something. Go have a look-see.

I’ll just swipe the entire text of the story since it’s really short:

”TO China where a baby boy with eight toes on each foot has been discharged from a hospital in Leizhou, southeast Guangdong province.

The baby has five fingers on each hand but doesn’t have thumbs.

The medical experts say:

“Doctor said this might have something to do with genetics or environment pollution.”

Or, er, not…"


The headline is a little misleading as it reads “Eight-Toed Baby Born in China.” So I fixed it for them on this post’s title.

Slightly creepy pic and contest rules below the fold.



Now for the contest: You are tasked with providing activities for each of the extra three “piggies.” Start each sentence off with “This little piggie…” Be creative. And drunk.

The winner of the contest will receive two month free subscription to AoSHQ plus a full-body massage from WickedPinto, at the time and place of your choosing.

First runner-up will receive a one month free subscription to AosHQ and a personalized poem to you from Spurwing Plover.

Second runner-up will receive a sneak preview of Gabriel Malor’s next post, a 20,000 word tome regarding “Laws of the Seas from 1645 to 1887.

Edited: "Freak" removed from headline.
