Did you ever know anybody with three nipples?
Or is it like people who win the lottery – everyone knows someone who knows someone who has, but nobody’s ever actually seen it happen with their own two (or three) eyes.
I think Ross in Friends had a third nipple, didn’t he?
Being too curious for my own good, I checked it out on Wikipedia. Where it says:
‘A supernumerary nipple (also known as a third nipple, triple nipple, accessory nipple, pseudomamma or polythelia) is an additional nipple occurring in mammals, including humans. Often mistaken for moles, supernumerary nipples are diagnosed at a rate of 1 in 18 humans.‘
According to Google Images it seems like an in-joke among third nipple holders to have it pierced. Kinda funny i think, although bordering on really seriously gross.
‘…Although usually presenting on the milk line, pseudomamma can appear as far away as the foot…’
Here’s a list of some famous people who you may or may not know have third nipples:
Fortunately for everyone Dolly Parton doesn’t have one.
Hey, if you had a third nipple, and you got a boob job, would you get all three ‘done’, or just the two?
And it asks some interesting questions of the bra making people. Brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘Wonderbra’.
Okay, enough boob talk, it’s time to go and do monday.
