    It's a lazy Saturday Sunday here in Southern California. I have the day off and the rainy weather has kept me inside. So, I've been flipping the TV around, looking for something to hold my interest. I flip past The Learning Channel (TLC) and I see the info says something about "Half Man, Half Tree." My curiosity was piqued, so I turned it on and I was immediately floored by what I saw.

    This Indonesian man has rootlike growths on his hands and feet. I'm talking, we can't even tell it's human limbs. My God! The rest of his body is covered with various warts. This is one of the most horrific things I've ever seen, yet I can't take my eyes off it.

    Here's a link to see for yourself:

  3. If they ever need to know how old he is they can just chop him in half.

    Exactly. That about sums it up.
    I just sat here and watched a doctor tell him that he's going to treat him for the warts and hopefully cure that, but in the meantime, it's safe to go ahead and "saw the branches growing out of your hands and feet. It won't hurt."
    That's a sentence I bet that doctor never thought he'd ever have to say.

    We had a thread on this guy a while back, but I'm too lazy to look it up.

    I just started working Saturdays and I'm still mixed up on my days. Sorry 'bout that.

    A pigman, Jerry. Half man, half pig.

    "You got room for the pigman?"
    "The pigman can take the bus."
    "If the pigman had a car, he'd give you a ride."
    "How do you know? What if pigman had a two-seater?"
    "Come on George, be realistic."

    George: So any word? Did you hear from the pigman?
    Kramer: No.
    George: And he's not a pigman is he?
    Kramer: No, he's not. ... He's just a fat little mental patient.

    His favorite basketball player? Tree Rollins.
  12. He's certainly sporting wood.

    Least favorite expression: "Chopping wood."
