A Big Toe For A Thumb?
Megan Fox is hot. There’s just no doubt about it. But sometimes, it’s kind of fun to take down the prettiest girl in school. Turns out the 24-year-old actress, who is one of Maxim’s Sexiest Women Alive (year after year after year) actually does have a few physical flaws! The scientific name for her physical flaw is
Brachydactyly type D, or in plain English, stump thumb. That’s right! Her two thumbs look like two big toes! To pick on the popular girl in school some more, there are also terms such as club thumb, stub thumb, fat thumb, potter’s thumb and toe thumb. It’s also known as “murderer’s thumb,” a moniker once used by gypsy fortune tellers. Crazy! Whatever you call it, club thumbs are an inherited trait, which means she got it from someone in her family, and the condition is fairly common (up to 4% of our population is estimated to have a stubby thumb!)
Fox might be a little sensitive about the whole thing because she is said to have used thumb double’s in certain ads or commercials to hide her thumb. No need to be ashamed, dear. People like your thumbs! No, really, they do – more than 1,000 people “like” Megan Fox’s thumbs on Facebook. Yes, there’s a page for that. And for the toe-thumbed among us who aren’t celebrities, don’t worry – Facebook’s got you covered, too. A group called Brachydactyly Type D has more than 900 members, each of them proudly giving the condition a stumpy thumbs up. The page’s wall is covered with notes like “BDDs unite!” and “I finally feel like I belong !!” Hahaha, sorry I can’t help but laugh. It truly is funny.
It makes me wonder, do Megan Fox’s real big toes look like thumbs?
