Photo: General Tom Thumb Ripley's Odditorium (Gatlinburg)

Charles Sherwood Stratton was better known as General Tom Thumb who worked for P.T. Barnum. Unlike many people with strange bodies, he lived a somewhat decently long life at the age of 45. This guy would make Peter Dinklage look tall.

45 sounds scarily short to me (no pun intended there). I'm less than 6 years away from that age, myself!

Interesting!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Okay, I thought Tom Thumb was thumb size.

My nursery school was called Tom Thumb.

45 is a long life? I'd be dead by now.

If you had an abnormal height or weight, yes.

He looks nothing like his representation in The Greatest Showman!
