Y'all wanna know what harlequin fetus is? Google-image it. Actually, don't. Seriously don't. Just as chicken put it, the most horrifying image of a disease anybody has ever seen. The fucking thing scared the shit out of me for months after i saw it. The diesease was first observed in South Carolina by Reverend Oliver Hart.

"On Thursday, April ye 5, 1750, I went to see a most deplorable object of a child, born the night before of one Mary Evans in "Chas"town. It was surprising to all who beheld it, and I scarcely know how to describe it. The skin was dry and hard and seemed to be cracked in many places, somewhat resembling the scales of a fish. The mouth was large and round and open. It had no external nose, but two holes where the nose should have been. The eyes appeared to be lumps of coagulated blood, turned out, about the bigness of a plum, ghastly to behold. It had no external ears, but holes where the ears should be. The hands and feet appeared to be swollen, were cramped up and felt quite hard.
The back part of the head was much open. It made a strange kind of noise, very low, which I cannot describe. It lived about forty-eight hours and was alive when I saw it."
Sucks for anyone who sees it.
Harlequin Fetus kinda looks like a pepperoni pizza.

An skin disease called Harlequin-type ichthyosis wich causes the skin to become diamond plated, as well as the eyes to turn out and the ears, nose, and appendages to be horribly deformed or non-existant. The mouth is drawn into a painful rendtion of a jesters smile. The babies usually die within days due to severe bacterial infection of the cracked skin.

Recently an internet phenomenon has started with people linking others to pictures of harlequin babies in an attempt to shock them. While not particularly shocking to many, some people are truly horrified; however these people are wrong. The correct response is to laugh long and laugh hard at the suffering of other human beings. Many bleeding heart liberals wish people would stop posting these pictures because it's "inhumane". They obviously haven't learned that internet trolls have no soul.
Dude, my friend sent me this *linkage*
