For some reason I laughed out loud at this

Bloke born with no arms and legs. We’d call him Bob if he were in a swimming pool.

And this just made me laugh:

He gently takes the edge of his juice glass between his lips, lifts it with the help of his short right arm, and balances it there while he drinks.

He eats without cutlery, using his lips. He writes with his mouth, holding the pen between his molars, always on his right side because he can’t write with his left side.

Abidextrous of course isn’t quite le mot juste here but that writing part really does amuse.

    LOL

    Reminds me of the old joke:
    What do you call a fly with no wings?

    A walk

  2. Reminds ne of the American I met when I was backpacking.
    He was hitchhiking round the world, by himself, despite being born with no arms.
    His pack hung off a frame, his documents were in a bag round his neck, his sandals were loose so he could slip them off and use his feet to eat. Incredible.
