    There was documentary about him and others similarly afflicted on tv a couple of weeks ago, they were working for some kind of travelling freak show.

    Apparently doctors are hopefully for a cure.

    I saw the documentary and it was amazing (and disgusting really) to see how much it looked like bark.

    The tree man was offered treatment, but decided to turn it down and stick with the circus IIRC. Sure it said that at the end of the program.

    Jokes on this topic are aspen for trouble. But he's desperate for a cure because he's always rowan with his wife who is as thick as two short planks (well suited then!). He's pining for a wild service from the doctors, don't yew know.

    A rare form of Dutch Elm Disease? I can't believe he's worried that it'll grow over his face! Is he concerned it'll ruin his looks?
    He's a father of two? Presumably that happened before he turned into something that resembles a rotten banana tree....

    I believe that a certain celebrity has taken up his plight and is campaigning vociferously for his right to remain as he is.....

    I was reading about this guy in Bizzare a few months ago, those hand don't stop him smoking, apparently he smokes about 40-60 fags a day through a specially made pipe.

    Doctors have worked out that it is the same virus that causes warts, but his imune system cannot defend against it so it just keeps multplying
