"Can people have more than five fingers on their hands?", asked the kids.
"Well, yeah," we answered. "It's very rare..."
"Can we see?"
Oh, crap. We better show them in a controlled environment, because they've gotten quite adept at googling things themselves. Let's make sure safe search is on... There was that baseball player, right?
Looks like Antonio Alfonseca is not the only famous person who was born with polydactyly. (Hey, we learned a new word!) So was Bond girl Gemma Arterton, but unlike the aforementioned pitcher, she had her sixth fingers amputated at birth. Probably for the best, as it's unlikely she would have risen to movie stardom with the extra digits... (Here is where we mention that despite the incredibly goyishe name, Gemma Christine Arterton is Halachically Jewish.)
"Eww," the kids said.
Out of the mouth of babes?
