Freak 'Magnet Boy" Claims His Body Attracts Metal Objects!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An 11-year-old Brazilian boy has doctors scratching their heads as they try to figure out whether the boy is truly able to attract metal objects with his body.

Paulo David Amorim`s father made the announcement on Friday to the Brazilian website Globo. The boy`s father, Junior Amorim claims that he got the idea of testing his son out after he saw a 6-year-old Croatian boy perform the amazing feat back in May."


The Brazilian doctors may be scratching their heads, but I`m shaking my head at the antics of the little con artist. If Paulo is brought to a first-rate nation like America or England, he will be exposed as a fraud by doctors and scientists.

Paulo doesn`t exactly have a magnetic personality, he probably conjured up the trick in a vain attempt to attract schoolgirls. His father realized that he could exploit his son, and now he`s taking the hapless kid to to every media outlet he can.

Paulo`s parents claim that their son also has healing powers. Yeah right, and I`m sure that pigs can also fly out of his rear end.
