Apologies for missing a week! To make up for it you’re getting a few pictures to choose from… or perhaps try them all? This is Meribeth Old, a contortionist who was active in the 50’s.

Bet she was fun at parties…I can’t even touch my toes without bending my knees, so this kind of thing blows me away. How the HELL do you rest your head on your OWN knee??? I’ve seen this kind of stuff done live at Cirque Du Soleil, usually by diminutive Asian girls and have come away from there feeling very old and decrepit…Great pix mate.
