It's a boy! Ten fingers, ten toes ... oh, wait.

  1. Doctors and nurses didn't initially notice that a California boy born was born with 12 functional fingers and 12 toes. Mom says he might turn out to be a heck of a pianist some day:

    Good to know he's healthy and they're all functional. Then again, his parents are going to have to create another piggy for the nursery rhyme.

    Reminds me of the joke where the genie hears the request wrong and the guy ends up with a 12-inch pianist.

    OK, the closeup shots didn't freak me out. But the full-body shot, for whatever reason, did. Yikes.

    I have a friend who has six toes on each foot, the sixth being little buds off her pinkie toes. One "died" when she was a baby, but she still has 11.

    Usually they tie off one finger if it is growing off the end of another finger at birth, and it just sort of dies off.

    Six functional fingers is the dominant gene, believe it or not.

    Does this mean someone's getting an extra shocker down the road?
  10. I'm trying to think of all the extra things I could do with 12 functional fingers.

    AP is reporting the parents have contacted Chef to make their child "normal".
