    "Doing a handstand should be no problem for this guy.

    A Chinese man had his right hand grafted to his ankle for more than a month following an accident.

    Xiao Wei, of China's Hunan province, severed the hand at work in November, the Metro reported. His co-workers were able to retrieve the hand, which doctors said they would be able to reattach -- just not immediately.

    In order to keep the hand from dying, doctors grafted it to the man's ankle."

    Wow! I hope they were able to reattach it and that it works.

    Oh man, I'd have to make a trip to the shoe store while I had it there just to watch the sales associates' reactions.

    Tying his shoe is now a snap.
