JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I HAD SEEN EVERYTHING...


A

long comes the Vadoma people. And who are they you may ask? The Vadoma are a group of people, living as a tribe in the far reaches of Zimbabwe on the Zambezi River. These people are extremely remote from any other tribe or people of any kind.

So remote in fact that they inter-marry each other. Mothers and sons, nieces and uncles, brother and sister, etc. You get the idea.

We all know the results of incest... which usually turns out to be extremely slow learners to all kinds of inbreeding diseases.

Enter a new incest malady... only two toes. The entire tribe only has two toes on each foot... a big toe and a little toe. The three in the middle do not exist. The tribe is better known as the "Ostrich People" and they suffer with ectrodactyly... a condition which produces 2 toed people.

The government has made several attempts at trying to locate the people of this tribe so that they would be assimilated into normal society. The tribes-people have resisted for years and have no intention of mixing with normal people.

Observations and Questions
Are there any two-toed people that read my blog and would like to comment?
