While procrastinating the writing of a computer security paper, I ran across a site full of Circus Freaks that includes pictures and little biographies. Midgets are always good, but you have to feel sad for the limbless dwarf. Watch out for the conjoined twins that only have one name listed (some of them have multiple legs, but more often than not, they have pieces of little people sprouting from their bellies….ick). They even have Zip the pinhead! I’m not so sure about the “living skeleton” (a man weighing 58 pounds) and his wife (467 pounds)–that kind of scares me.

I would have directly linked to some of the pictures/bios above, but the whole site is fairly linear and you’ll get to see all of them if you just keep clicking on “next.”
