Hell, I'd maybe even go so far as to call it Thumbsday, what with this amazing case of polydactylism gone Greco-Roman finger wrestling champion. Let's face it, Chris Pontius didn't have a nun's chance in hell when it came to facing off with this Hindi fellow, not only because his thumb was outnumbered but because polydactylism is considered to be good luck in the mystical land of India. Why, the one night I ventured out to dinner at a restaurant in Mumbai, I was pleased beyond peaches to spy that our server had extra digits on his hands, which, in my nearsighted eyes, equates to getting a fortune cookie at a Chinese restaurant. Such incidents as these are what may have made India the greatest Wildboyz trip ever, unless perhaps you ask half the crew that all shat themselves silly ill during the two week dysentery express from Corbett to Khajuraho.
