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 assume that cure will involve confiscating their copy of photoshop
Not this time John..........as amazing as it looks, the guy is for real
I saw the documentary and it was amazing (and disgusting really) to see how much it looked like bark.
I wonder how often he gets "wood".
I saw the documentary about this - there was another one to about a man in Portugal called something like the 'man with no face' all his face had turned into several massive tumors.
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.
Quality. The only problem is I now have coffee sprayed all over my screen! Cheers
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....
It's called "branching out".
Out of every acorn a great man grows?
Only when the saps rising.
I hear he got axed from his old job. (true)
Was he an arborist and couldn't see the trees for the wood?
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
An update on his condition.
he was on tv this week with the bubble man
txs for the update on his condition
Now that was a first class response
He is looking a little different now.
Nearly 1 stone of warts removed.
How does he manage to hold that pen?
didnt one of those guys refuse treatment for religious reasons.
The guy was a construction worker? wonder if he did any carpentry?
