"Those who are born physically different have always had a place in the spotlight. They have drawn out societys curiosity and awe, as well as its disapproval and its wrath.
We're familiar with various labels; human oddities, curiosities, special people, abnormalities, prodigies, and, that most controversial of all words, "freaks". Sociologists devote entire studies to the subject in what are often vain attempts to unravel this fascination. What makes the spectacle of a human oddity so magnetic?
The most common association with human anomalies is with circuses and sideshows. Each time the show came to town, the locals raced to get a first hand view of the wondrous sights.
Here they could see the fat lady and the leopard people. They could see the giant play checkers with Major Mite, the celebrated midget. They could see bearded ladies like the one and only Annie Jones and a host of others who could make your eyes pop. How is our desire to stare a mirror of ourselves? A search for answers may take us as far back as history records." Freaks Uncensored
