A Chinese boy is born with 6 normally-growing digits on each hand and foot, giving him 24 total.

Strangely, three months before the birth of Guangchun, his family’s sow also labored a weird shaped piglet, which had eight legs, two mouths and four ears.

His mother says:

“The pig died two days later. It possibly was a bad omen to the family, leading to the birth of my son with extra fingers and toes,” the mother added.

It might also be an omen that local industry is pumping poison into the top soil. I’m just gonna throw that one out there.
