Monday, June 05, 2006 :::
So the other day this three armed baby made the news:
It's too bad they gotta remove one of the arms, because if ever there were a kid destined to be a piano prodigy, it was the Asian three armed baby. Even with three arms, an Asian baby is the cutest thing ever.
So I was thinking about extra appendages when I FINALLY remembered the Google Image Search I've wanted to perform for YEARS, but I've always somehow forgotten: diphallia. There was this Trivial Pursuit question that asked, "What does a man suffering from Diphallia have?" And the answer was "two penises", and I've always been curious as to whether they were side by side or one on top of the other. Well, thanks to Google Image Search, I have my answer. But the image made my stomach churn something awful, so I refuse to post it. If you want to see it, you gotta Google it yourself. It's a curiosity-killing-the-cat type of scenario, but I'm relieved that I finally got that out of my system. Thank you, three armed baby!
If you do decide to Google it for yourself and need to cleanse your visual palate, here is something much much more cute to witness (albeit slow to download):

ew about diphallia. i remember that question from trivial pursuit though - i answered it correctly and my mom was the questioner. that's burned into my frontal lobe. forever.
and the three armed baby? that's too bad they've gotta remove it; it'd be pretty damn cool on show & tell day at school. but of course, i guess if you had three arms, EVERY day would be show & tell day.

How do you know when it's real diphallia, or just some sick porno fake?

I actually predicted this would happen: that in, like, another ten thousand years, humans would have extra arms in order to accomplish the multitasking demanded by today's society. Think about it: how much easier would it be to drive a car while steering with one hand, shifting with another, holding a cell phone with a thrid and eating a McMuffin with a fourth? This baby is light years ahead of his time.

FYI: Three armed baby surgery a success.

Three arms? Hmm, if he had one more head, he could grow up to play Zaphod Beeblebrox in yet another "Hitchhiker's Guide" remake! : )

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH! What the hell? My brain just recoiled in horror.
8am is way to early for that kind of image.

Okay, so they´re next to eachother. I am so going to show off my new knowledge at the next party i go to... do you think it could possibly help as a pick-up line? don´t think so...

Since I’m at work I am not going to do the image search until I get home, but I gotta say, I really enjoyed the pallet cleanser. Poor kangaroo, mean bird.

I am suprised that there were only two images in the Google image search. And it only leaves more questions. Such as, do these people live normal lives? Can someone with Diphalia mature and go through puberty? OK, now I am freaking myself out.
That Kangaroo video broke my heart! He's just quietly munching, and all he can do is look down, semi-obliviously as that mean old bird snatches his food.
PS some homeless guy is going to find that kid's arm while rumaging throught the trash.

I find that one is too many to look at... why two? That's just a cruel cruel joke...
Cute baby though!

There was apparently an Ancient Greek comedy with a main character called Triphallis. I think that the only part of it which survived was the list of characters and basic plot.

Sarah, PLEASE say you didn't look. You'll go blind! Haven't I taught you anyhting? Now go poke out your mind's eye!

Sarah, PLEASE tell me you didn't look! You'll go blind! Haven't I taught you anything? Now go poke out your mind's eye!
By Lorraine, at 12:24 PM
Mom, I'm at work there is no way I'd Google Image Search that here. By the way, I need to come borrow your computer later...
By the other sarah, at 12:47 PM
Wow that was funny. I'm fake laughing!
By Lorraine, at 12:56 PM
I totally posted about the three armed kid today too. Spooky. (Or just really good blog material).
By elizabeth, at 6:44 PM
It's got to be bad luck just seeing that.
By , at 8:59 PM
I so think that Asian kid is cute. Something about Asian babies, I guess! .. or just babies in general. Well, until they spit up on you, but even then.. .
If you have diphallia, do you get double erections? That might make sex a little bit tricky, wouldn't it..?

I can hear many, MANY men in the world sighing with sadness at the removal of such a convenient appendage...

Magpies (the black bird that stole the wallaby's food) are nasty creatures.
You don't want to walk near one during springtime - if they have babies about, the magpie will swoop or dive-bomb you. I got swooped when I was about 8yo - my Poppy threw rocks at it so I could run safely down the street to get away from it!

That child is one arm short of being a Hindu God! He'll have to settle for being a demigod.
And Dan, you'll be fascinated to learn about hemipenes. I used to work in a museum that had a big ol' glass bottle full of rattlesnake hemipenes. Ah, good times.

Aw Dan, you KNOW we all just had to look. Is this really common enough there's a word for it? A Trivial Pursuit word, no less? I never knew. It never even occured to me, actually. Wow, your blog is funny AND educational.
I feel gypped though, because my google search only turned up one image. I thought it looked like some little horned animal. Kinda cute, actually, in some weird way.
By , at 4:03 PM
Alright...the baby is cute and everything...but I think we're all ready for a new post. New Post! New Post!! New Post!!!
By Kristina, at 9:10 AM
I'll second that...
By Darcy's Twin, at 9:44 AM
I sent this to my friend and he had the following to say... "Dude, that is my cousin's kid. Dick." He's serious.
By , at 11:26 PM
I googled it and the first 10-15 sites did not have pics. wtf?
Also, did you know your site is now the #4 link that pops up when googling "diphalia".

Why did the one armed baby cross the road?
Because he wanted to go to the second hand store.
