"I cried when I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet. And then I laughed... really hard."

Yeah, but I bet he sucks at playing "This Little Piggy".

He won't be able to help them very much. Maybe as a late 2nd half substitute but that's about it.

That seems cruel. Like, "hey kid, look at us, we're kicking a ball... with our feet!"

No wonder people think pro athletes are assholes.

Fark: He was born without feet

How does he smell?

I don't like waving at people I don't know, because, what if they don't have a hand? They'll think you're cocky.

THIS is why it should not be called 'football'.

I find the two (that I know of so far) armless guitarists on YouTube a lot more impressive.

Headline: "Fark: He was born without feet "

Was he drawn by Rob Liefeld?

I'm amazed at the balance he has to have to do this. I wonder if his kicks are more powerful because he doesn't have feet to soften the blow?

This is what I thought of upon reading the headline lol.

I know this is FARK, but I really hope no one satyrizes this boys condition.

Better than you and your stinky feet.

AiryAnne: I know this is FARK, but I really hope no one satyrizes this boys condition.


Is this a subtle Sandusky joke?

Reminiscent of Garrincha, the angel with bent legs:

upload.wikimedia.org

He had several birth defects: his spine was deformed, his right leg bent inwards and his left leg six centimeters shorter and curved outwards, none of which impeded his ability to play football at the highest level.


Won two world cups with Brazil. Brazil only lost one game with him on the pitch, when Pelé wasn't playing. They won every game in which the two of them played.

Also a colourful character, a poor Brazilian who found international fame due to his immense footballing talent.. He is rumoured to not have bothered with banks and the like, and kept all his money under his mattress. All sorts of crazy sexual exploits, It's been said he lost his virginity to a goat.

They don't make them like Garrincha or George Best any more.

Welp. I bet he's never been accused of a toe poke.

So now you're making fun of him because he's poor and cannot afford the internet to do the tracking, or the plane ticket to the destination??? That's pretty hateful.

Seriously, Barca, this is gonna bite you in the ass in ten years when you're two points from the drop zone and all your young talents are double amputees and retards.
 
2012-08-29 02:37:06 PM  
No feet? Is that like some European, metric thing-y? Does he have three decapeters instead?
 
2012-08-29 02:39:21 PM  
I supposed it is quite common for people to sign up players with no left foot...
