Mutants

I'd like to post a blog about mutants, but I'm trying to get my stomach to settle down a little bit first. For some reason, a two-faced cat and an octopus girl kind of make me a little queasy. I think that's part of the reason that people like to look at such oddities. We like to be freaked out a little. Alright, here goes.

We'll start with the two-headed cat, Lil Bit:



Freak show, huh?! The news story includes a short video of the cat wiggling around on its back and blinking its eyes independently. Creepy. I think the owner could have come up with a much more creative name for this little monster than Lil Bit, though. Janus, for instance (after the two-faced Roman God).

This little freak of nature reminds me of an excellent X-Files episode from season 5, called Post-Modern Prometheus. It's about a two-faced mutant, and it features Cher, circus tents, and various people who resemble animals to a tee (like a goat-man, pig-lady, and chicken-reporter). It's also the only episode filmed in B&W, so it has that creepy halloweeny atmosphere. But it's a light-hearted show. I recommend it. Incidentally, the name of this episode was once the answer to a final Jeopardy question. For once in my life I wished I was on Jeopardy.

Anyway, let's move onto Lakshmi, the little Indian girl who was born with four arms and four legs (and was named Lakshmi after the Hindu god with four arms -- how appropriate that she was born in India!):





Wow, huh?!
Lakshmi just underwent surgery to remove her superfluous twin, and is apparently recovering well. I can't help wondering where the "business" area got hidden in all that mess of limbs. I hope it got sorted out.

If anyone else has heard of any mutants, I'm in a freak show kind of mood, so post your links below in the comments section.
