Every child is unique, it's true. Some, however, are a little more unique than others. There was Lakshmi, who was born with four arms and four legs. And now there's the son of Chinese farmer Li Jun of Hejian city located in the central Chinese province of Henan. The boy was destined to be twice the man I am -- he was born with two penises.

Yep, you read that right -- the boy had an extra bit of manhood smack dab in the middle of his back. While I'm not sure that's the spot I'd pick for a little extra equipment, it would certainly make for some interesting conversations down at the local swimming hole. The abnormal growth was apparently a case of fetus in fetu, a condition where a fetus develops inside or as part of its twin.

Doctors spent more than three hours in surgery removing the extra penis and say he is doing fine. I'm not so sure of that, however. You think the anti-circumcision guys are angry; when he grows up, this kid is gonna be pissed!
