No Longer Fit to Play With Jimmy Buffett

The after (left) and before (right) pictures remind me of Lou Ferrigno changing back into mild mannered Bill Bixby.

Of course the transformation is no joke to 38 year old Lin Tianzhuan of China. He began getting these growths when he was 13 and has spent most of his life since then hidden away indoors because of the reactions he got when he went out in public. Called "Coral Boy" or "The Human Coral Reef" he would have been a natural fit for Jimmy Buffett's backup band, the Coral Reefers, except that the growths are are as hard as they look.

He tried using creams and anti-biotics but they were ineffective. Instead, Lin said, "it just got worse. They grew and grew and soon they were all over my arms and legs, my back and even my head. It was as if I was turning to stone and it was terrifying."

As you can see from the after picture, the year long therapy has worked amazingly well, Lin having only a few discolored patches remaining from previous condition.

Hopefully Mr. Buffett can get along without him.
