Megan Fox and I look very similar. Really we do. Not kidding.
You'll recognize her as the sultry actress from the Transformer movies and she recently married Brian Austin Green (from 90210 fame).
You can see the resemblance really well in this photo.
Yes, our thumbs are identical!!!
My sister sent me an article about Megan's thumbs one day and I found it amusing that there are other people out there with my thumbs. We even have our own Facebook page!
I have always had these really dorky looking thumbs. They are shorter than they should be and the nail is VERY short and VERY wide. It is impossible to get fake press on nails that fit them and polishing them just draws attention to their shortness.
It looks like I have big toes for thumbs.
I didn't even know there was a name for it - Brachydactyly type D. Sort of makes it sound like I'm a dinosaur.
Now, in my entire life I have never had anyone mention them to me unless I brought it up. And I didn't even realize they were that different until I was in college and started noticing that no one else was sporting the toe-thumbs.
And weirdly enough, my Mom never noticed they were any different until someone else in the family mentioned them to her - when I was at least 30 years old! I was the 8th child in our family, so I guess they didn't bother checking me out too closely when I was born.
Anyhow, it's not something I even think about or care about that much, but it's nice to know there are other people like me out there in the world. Do you have any weird body parts (PG Rated of course)?

What a great post!!
You made me giggle. 🙂
I have the worlds ugliest big toe. Seriously.
Well, actually I have 2 of them. Hehee!
And nope, Im not taking photos of them to prove it. LOL!!
I could wear a size smaller shoe if it wasnt for my big toe. 😉
Thanks for the giggle, I sure needed it.
Screaming with laughter! I have no weird parts except for a twisted mind which is a requirement for a psych nurse. hugs♥olive
Thanks for a chuckle. I don't have the thumbs, but my toes may be contenders!
Hhmmm - I have a fang. Which gave me the knickname "Snaggle" in high school. Never thought Id write about that - thanks for the chuckles.
LOL- When I opened your blog and saw that picture and you said that you were identical to Megan Fox I thought, "Well, this girl has done herself in-No one will identify with her because she is so beautiful-they will all be jealous- but IIIII will come back because I like this girl". Yep! That's what I thought...and then you got to the imperfection part! Love it...love it...love it...You are my hero. No..wait...my husband is MyHero..but you are a close second because never in my life would I post a picture of my 2 big toes "gone bad". NO WAY! Bravo! And, I, like you, live in the Midwest where it barely matters if we show our toes anyway. lol I found you through Heaven's Walk. Isn't she a doll? Diana

LOLOLOL! Oh my gosh!! What a hoot, Pam! This is my first time to your blog - because I wanted to thank you for visiting mine and leaving your wonderful suggestions for my poor bookcase. I giggled all the way through your post today.
Hmmmm....the only body part that's weird I can think of that immediately comes to mind is my thighs. They aren't supposed to rub together when you walk, are they? LOLOL! My corduroy pants make all sorts of noise... hehehe!
Have a great day - thumb issue and all! 🙂

Oh my! This is too funny! Weird body parts?.... hmmm. Well, lets see, I have arms that bend too far back- so it looks like I have bird wings or something. Plus, I can twist them something crazy-I guess I have what is referred to as loose joints. They kind of do things they shouldn't.... cute post.. 🙂
I have Partial Adontia. Interesting article. Thanks for the pics. 🙂
I stumbled across this after finally discovering what my thumbs are called haha! I'm not alone! But this is the first thing I've seen where someone has the same thing on their toes as well. Like me! I've always been so shy and embarrassed about my toes especially and just knowing there's one other person with it has made me care a lot less.
Thumbs up for our thumbs!
too funny! i didn't know we had a name! yep I've got them and they illicit lots of attention. Huh look at your thumbs they look like toes. Do your toes look like thumbs. Wow. Can I see your hand. Yeah lots of attention for the toe thumbs. People notice.
