Vishnu Baby

Now, it's not so much the fact that this cute little tyke in China was born with a rather useful extra arm that's freaky, so much as that they didn't let the baby KEEP it. Doesn't anyone realise that having an extra hand can be really handy? Isn't it a common desire to have someone "lend a hand" or wish they had more hands to do daily tasks? Doesn't the Hindu god Vishnu have a bunch of arms?
Now this kid is going to be growing up like the rest of us two-armed creatures, being stuck with opening pickle jars and shaking ketchup bottles furiously instead of being "the cool kid with the extra arm that can get us out of a jam."
China, why so cruel?
