All Thumbs on the iPhone?

6:00 PM -- Local man has thumbs surgically altered to use iPhone. Yep, you read that right. Surgically altered to use a phone.

I was convinced the North Denver News must be a joke news site when I first read this, but apparently this is all too real. Thomas Martel, 28, of Bonnie Brae is said to be happy with his new thumbs.

"Though opening spaghetti sauce jars has been a problem," he tells the paper. "That was a big surprise."

re: All Thumbs on the iPhone? ... NOT :-)

With regard to the thumbs alternation, that one article gets two up from my view :-)

The guys from the Denver Newspaper in the meatime felt required to make a note that their satirical non-sensical content was put forward in part as an attempt to sharpen the readers mind to not Faux News for granted...

All the best !
