And you thought foot-and-mouth was bad

Pax Arcana

Our front-line Internet spy Jaelynne emailed me a story this morning that is absolutely kick-you-in-the-brain strange.

Doctors in Colorado operated on a 3-day old newborn after spotting a small tumor on the baby’s brain. What they found was… well, let’s let go straight to the story:

Grabb said that while removing the growth, he discovered it contained a nearly perfect foot and the formation of another foot, a hand and a thigh.

“It looked like the breach delivery of a baby, coming out of the brain,” Grabb said. “To find a perfectly formed structure (like this) is extremely unique, unusual, borderline unheard of.”

Here is an artist’s rendering of the scene:


Now, we know from reading Dr. French Fry that the human body is capable of creating some jacked-up shit, but this is taking things one step too far.

I bet the doctor regrets dragging his feet on taking pictures of the tumor to show incredulous colleagues. Honestly, without proof he doesn’t have a leg to stand on. I think something is afoot with all of this.

    I’m no doctor, but I would’ve thought that if it has a foot, it’s not a tumor, but rather something else. Like a MUTANT BABY.
