Lady Finds Prosthetic Leg! Dear Lord, Why Hasn't Anybody Claimed It?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Wisconsin said they are hoping someone will come forward with information about a prosthetic leg discovered in a neighborhood in the early morning."


This is an odd story indeed, it`s not like you can misplace or lose a prosthetic leg. I`ve spent minutes searching for my glasses only to discover that they were sitting on top of my bald head. But a dude who forgets to put on his fake leg will realize his error when he tries to take his first step.


Why would any person in his right mind discard his prosthetic leg? An artificial leg is very expensive, it has to be manufactured especially for the owner. It`s not like some dude got tired of his fake leg, and tossed it in the street, figuring he would buy a new one at a medical supply store.

Maybe a mugger snatched the guy`s artificial limb as a practical joke, and the disabled man is too embarrassed to claim it. I am very intrigued by this incident, and I hope the cops get to the bottom of it.
