I once knew a contortionist from the Phillipines...a Manila folder, per se.

On a related note:

I once knew a doctor from Egypt...a Cairo-practor.

Okay, okay, enough already!

I once knew a guy from Romania.

He was called Albert, but pronounced it weirdly.

This is no worse than Bill Clinton getting his foot stuck in his mouth?

"Ah did not have sex with that woman."

Cool! Someone who can really pull their head out of their ass!

So if this contortionist was giving himself a blow job in Utah, would he be arrested?

Hmmmm. Stuck in his shoulder ... or stuck on his shoulders.

I can put both feet behind my head and play piano at the same time ;) I used to be able to put them behind my head without even using my hands, but I'm not as flexible any more. I always sit or sleep in wierd positions, and people always ask, "how can you be confortable like that?". I dunno, its been a nice ability ;)

Imagine my relief when I realized this should read "on left shoulder," not "in left shoulder"...
2001-07-12 01:27:17 PM  
No everybody, it is suppose to read in left shoulder . It seems he wasn't just a contortionist, he is also a magician, and it seems he was practicing his trick to out due David Copperfield's walking through the Great Wall of China, he was going to perform, " walking through myself
Really kind of creepy when you think about it.

They didn't mention how the osteopath got his this idiot's head out of his ass.
2001-07-12 02:25:56 PM  
Hey Rei, could we please see some pictures of this thing you are able to do?

-he who stacks pork

Laf, my mother has some of me when I was little, I don't have any recent ones. I don't even have a normal photo of myself scanned in yet, let alone a wierd one ;)

If I had a woman who could do such things, we would never leave the house.
2001-07-12 07:55:52 PM  
hah.. at first they ignored him when he shouted for help. does this kinda thing happen often in the circus?
2001-07-12 11:47:50 PM  
Nkosika: If that were the case, wouldn't he be a *distortionist* ? :)
2001-07-13 12:31:15 AM  
Now why the fark did his buddies "search the internet" for a damn doctor-type instead of...I don't know...HELPING HIM THEMSELVES?!?
It's not like un-twisting a guy's leg is the same as treating a gunshot wound.
