The Merbaby

Dear mouse,

If you have been watching Korina Sanchez' Rated K, you would have seen the siyokoy (merman) whose operation to make him more human-like was bankrolled by some charitable organizations thru the program.

This photo was e-mailed to the group by polo.

At first, I thought it was a hoax. This latest news however made me sigh a relief. It is depressing to think that some people ended up in carnival's freak show because of their abnormalities.

LIMA, PERU: Peruvian surgeons have performed a preliminary operation to separate the fused legs of a 9-month-old girl known as the 'baby mermaid' because of her rare birth defect, her doctor said on Friday

g,
the story is not published hence there is no photo but there has been follow-ups on the progress of surgeries that were performed on that 50-year old adult "merman".

Although he did not have fused limbs, his head, skin, eyes and mouth resembled that of a hideous mythological sea creature.

pusa,
gonna check that link in my template settings.
