I'll take the toe-thumb any day.

We all have things we'd love to change about ourselves.

And, I'm not talking about things like self-esteem and being kinder to others.

I'm talking real stuff.

Stuff like sagging eyelids and saddlebags.

That's real, right? At least that's all Hollywood and the world tells us is important.

We're not the only ones with these issues. Movie stars have them too.

Even poor little Megan Fox.
She had to use a "body" double to replace her weird toe-thumb in her recent Superbowl commercial.

First, take a close look at the toe-thumb.

I don't know about you, but I can hardly look at her anymore due to this grotesque appendage. Disgusting.

Now, look at the thumb in her Superbowl commercial.

Told ya'.

Oh, what I would give to have a toe-thumb be my one flaw.

Puh-lease.

It's a thumb that looks like a toe. You'd swear she was the Elephant Man.

Stop making Megan feel insecure. Let her show her toe-thumb.

My 9 yr old son read this with me and corrected me when I said "toe-thumb"..."It's called a club thumb, Mom. My teacher has one, but hers is shorter than that." Geez! Kids notice everything. Just proves that nobody is perfect. I want to know where I can get a bikini body model stand in.

Wonder how one gets to be a thumb model?

As long as it doesn't smell like a toe....I'd say she was OK!

And oh, goodie, goodie, goodie...we get to raise daughters in a world with this mentality! Just came from a weekend of talking about Ps. 45:11, "The King is enthralled by your beauty..." and boy do we need to hear it!

I'll give her both my thumbs and toes (I have good looking toes), if she'll give me her body. Let her know. The offer stands.

That thumb is hilarious.....but how stupid that they changed her thumb on the commercial! I mean, the WHOLE WORLD knows she has a crazy thumb and then zoom in on NOT her thumb?! Duh.
And why couldn't she have been on her couch with the phone, not in the bathtub?! Actually, she's probably more covered in the bathtub than in her clothes! Hah!

The thumb is nothing to be ashamed of...the commercial is. Gross.

Cathy said...

Where do you find this stuf? Hysterical!

**Eye roll**

Poor, poor Megan :)

Vanessa said...

Maybe she could add another talent to her portfolio----walking on her hands, I mean feet, I mean hands. She's such a great actress (cough, cough) I am sure this doesn't bother her a bit. Two toe-thumbs up for this post!

You are hilarious! How did you even come up with that? or do you purposely go looking for things like this? LOL that was so good, and by the way I didn't even know that was Megan Fox in the commercial on Sunday, I had no clue, yet I'm sure my man-boys knew.................too stinkin' funny.

Linking to this post tomorrow. You are something else.

Can't believe I've lived all these years and never heard of a "toe thumb". Now I'm looking at my thumbs and trying to decide if I now have one more thing to be insecure of. ???

Crystal said...

Wowzers Yowzers! Stopping in from 2nd cup of coffee... POOR POOR Megan. Yeah, right. Not being mean, but I totally agree... to have that as your flaw. Wow. I'll trade my 20 something for one anyday. Although I'm sure she has others.... I did not like that superbowl commercial when it came on & I've seen it 2x since then. Just kinda odd.

Kelly Combs said...

Came over from Linda's at 2nd cup.

Oh, the embarassment to have to have a body double, or hand model, replace your ugly thumb. The total humiliation! *sigh* Wonder if that's really her leg rubbing the side of the tub? *grin*

Melissa said...

wow. That is really funny. The toe-thumb thing not the commercial. Okay, the commercial was funny in a dirty kind of way. I know a girl who has toes that look like fingers. Never seen a toe-thumb before though.

Betty said...

I came from Linda´s today. That was really funny and sooo true! Let her show her thumb! I agree!

My ADHD Me said...

Hi. Oh the humiliation!!

auburnchick said...

No wonder the girl is so narcissic. I have never cared for her and her attitude about being perfect for Hollywood. Unfortunately, things like this are what feed into the minds of young people, leading them to accept such dumb things as body doubles. Ugh.

RE: SB commericial ~ Those are George Costanza's hands. I'd recognize them anywhere.
