Yahoo! news, whatever else you wanna say about it, does occasionally amuse. Every now and then, I’ll go to check my email and it’ll cack up something pretty spectacular, like a hairball made of gold, right onto my computer screen. Take today, for example. This… is literally… what I read:
“Quantum of Solace” star Gemma Arterton is exceptional for her beauty — and her extra fingers.
No word of a lie. Here’s the article, for reals. This gorgeous dame, the next Bond girl, was born with six fingers on each hand. And, frankly, that’s sort of awesome. That’s got to come in seriously handy, no pun intended. Like, if you ever had to say “I can could on one hand the number of eggs that are in this half-dozen egg carton,” you’d be all set.
Except, of course, that the extra fingers were removed at birth. Which is truly a pity, methinks. Bands are always looking for chick bassists, and that extra digit would certainly be an advantage. Also, she’s playing a Bond girl, and just imagine the naughty name they could have come up with for her character. “Dodecahottie” comes to mind, but that’s because I’m not very creative.
