they want to hurt me
, I'll just say, "Do anything you want! Just don't break my thumbs!
" Being stupid
, they will try that first. They'll take my thumb
, and bend
it until it is straight
, then give it a sharp blow backward
s. I'll scream
, and they'll leave, thinking they got me good.
But my thumbs bend backwards anyway, so it really doesn't hurt
You see - well, ok, so you're reading. Anywho - my thumbs, both of them, can be bent
backwards at their joint greater than 180 degrees
(past 270, in fact). I still have muscle control
over the complete range of movement, too, so I can provide some resistance for the thumb breakers
right before the 'snap'.
Some people are weirded out
by this, so I usually put them at ease by making the mcdonald's M
by putting my palm
s facing toward them, and pressing my thumbs together. (I hope mcdonalds won't sue, I've been doing that trick for years
Oh, and those of you intent on breaking my thumbs - pretend you didn't read this
