A Man with Sixteen Toes (5 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Retro   27 Dec 2011   / 9976 views

Born in 1889, Francesco Lentini was the twelfth kid in his family. He wasn’t an ordinary boy. Go inside the post to see his story.

 

Francesco was born with 3 legs, 2 sets of functioning genitals and a rudimentary foot growing from his third leg’s knee. In total, he had four feet and 16 toes. He was first raised by his aunt who later sent the boy to a home for disabled kids. Here he learned how to ice skate and even jump rope.

When Lentini was 8 years old, he moved from Italy to the USA where he joined the Ringling Brothers circus as The Great Lentini. He toured a lot and used his third leg to kick a soccer ball across the stage. This was how he got his second name, the Three-Legged Football Player.

His extra body parts didn’t prevent him from marrying Theresa Murray and having 4 kids. Francesco Lentini died in Florida in 1966.

So he rested his first penis while using his second? His wife must have been exhausted. Doggystyle was probably her fav.
