    Let's talk about thumbs.

    Do you have a normal thumb or a thumb shaped like a toe?
    In short, do you have Megan Fox thumbs?

    I'm curious to see who else has thumbs like me. I'll try and grab a picture. Unfortunately I can't get one of my own at the moment but this is what my thumbs look like.

    I laughed when finding this image because there was one of Megan Fox but someone had pointed out her thumbs and scribbled "EWWW" across it, and another one was a screen shot of an article announcing hat "Megan Fox doesn't hide her thumbs". What is there to hide? It's a thumb. How would you hide it anyway? Wearing gloves makes it more obvious because you can still see the shape of the thumb.
    Also, I think someone on Wikipedia doesn't like their thumbs.

    "Clubbed thumb" is a misnomer for stub(by) thumb, known clinically as brachydactyly type D, or BDD. BDD is a physically harmless, but emotionally painful, genetic defect characterized by the last bone of one or both thumbs being short and round with an accompanying short and wide nail bed.


    My favourite stories to tell about my thumbs are the time that my thumb got stuck in a bowling ball and the time that when I went to the hospital to check up on my medication for my epilepsy that myself, my mum and the doctor I was seeing all had the thumbs (except my mum is weirder she only has 1).

    Apparently there's a 1/2000 people have these thumbs, and 1/4000 have one clubbed them, one normal thumb. That's just what I heard though.

    I'm at a disadvantage whenever I play because my thumbs are too short, lol. I can't even play my mum because we're both right handed and it's her right hang that has the normal thumb ;-;

    Not at all, I love making fun of my thumbs because they are weird XD On the other hand it was painful when I tried to throw the bowling ball with my thumb stuck inside.

    You're probably right. It sounds better anyway
    That's a little embarrassing.

    Haha, no offense taken. I do find it annoying that when I try and grow my nails that my thumb nails stop growing long before the others. I read that the nails on these sort of thumbs stop growing before they get past the tip of the thumb. The rest of my fingers are fine.

    --

    I want get a picture of my own thumb so I can show the actual shape of my thumb If I pinch the skin on the sides so it's tighter, it looks even thinner between the knuckle & first joint & even fatter at the joint :rofl: you have to see it, I can't put it into words.

    There's another rhyme that goes with this instead of 1,2,3,4... does anyone know what it is? It isn't numbers but a phrase
