Thumbelievable! Myspace, Facebook, Flickr

January 25, 2008

Wow, so loads of people out there have clubbed thumbs. I am not alone! If you are part of Myspace , Facebook (‘The clubbed thumb society’) or photo-sharing flickr you will find that those websites also have clubbed thumb groups.


Poll: Thumb name?

January 20, 2008

One of the things I have found out recently is that there is no set name for my thumbs. Wikipedia has used ‘clubbed’ thumbs and that’s where I got my idea from. But many people use the word ‘midget’ thumbs. I have also heard stub thumbs and others. The technical name is brachydactyly type D or BDD thumbs.

So how about Royal thumbs? Or Big Toe thumbs? Why not? So I have added a poll on the right to find out what terms people use…

More celeb thumbs

It seems in the acting and modelling profession, where outward appearance is important, people with BDD thumbs are more than successful. Thanks to Quinn and Jack for finding these. As well as Megan Fox (see previous post), from left to right: Malin Akerman (US actress), Tory Mussett (Australian actress), Ashley Lynn Cafagna (US actress), and Kristen van Der Noot (Germany DJ and Model).

Who knows, maybe famous historical figures also share this trait…
