Evolution, Or Just A Freak Of Nature?

A six legged calf has been born in Nebraska to farmer Brian Slocum. Well, actually, the calf was born to one of Slocum's cows, not Slocum himself. Just thought I should clarify that particular detail.

Anyway, the calf is now six days old and appears to be perfectly healthy except for the two extra legs. Another unusual feature of the bizarre bovine is that it has both male and female reproductive organs. Such hermaphrodite-like features are extremely rare among mammals, with the last documented case being that of Michael Jackson.

The young heifer was also born with no rectum, One was surgically added so the little fellow wouldn't end up full of shit.

Hmmm.... Maybe key members of the Bush administration should undergo the same surgery.
