They will never be able to successfully complete a high 5.  Tragic.

I normally use a colleague as my cat's paw.

They're probably pretty great at learning to tell time.

I've seen three or four people lately with this deformity. It's kind of like a bird claw.

What an awesome cat!  Are there extra toes on each paw?  His ears are interesting (and cute) too.

Probably the most famous with this deformity.

Not sure why the underscore, but that's the right answer. Also, you must now sacrifice both your rooks just because.

Yes he has six toes on the rear paws and you see his front paws, not sure how to describe them.

At least they can count to twelve.

But on a serious note, the only time genetic abnormalities hit 100% is when both parents carry the gene.  The likelihood that both of them carry a recessive gene meet up and make babies without knowing each other?  Very slim.  It's not like there is a dating website for 12 fingered folk.  What I'm saying is they're probably related.  Which is why boning close blood relatives is bad.  Sure, you'll get some that don't have issues, but the moment you have recessive genes, even if the parents don't show it and combine, you get abnormalities.

...and counting eggs and donuts and mixed race children. Oh, wait. Sorry. You said "dozenal".

Handy to have spares. (Thank, thank you! I'll be here all week. Tip your waitresses!)

Could have helped Boris Yeltson, who lost two fingers playing with a grenade as a child (hate it when I do that), and Jimmy Fallon, who lost part of a finger when he tripped and fell and his wedding ring was ripped off. (That's his story and he's sticking to it.)

It'd be nice if someone in that family cut off one and gave them the finger.

(That's right, all week! Try the veal!)

Polydactyly is autosomal dominant. You can inherit the trait even if only one of your parents has it.

Well, it's not exactly laser eyes or healing factor, but I guess as far as mutant powers go it could be worse.
