Gary “Stretch” Turner of the Royal Family of Strange People claims to have the world’s stretchiest skin.
Turner, 41, has an extreme case of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, an inherited disorder that causes his skin to be twice as thin as normal.
“If you look at your own skin cells under a microscope, they’d be nice and round and lock in many places,” Turner told ABC News back in 2007. “But my skin cells tend to be more jagged, and don’t fit together quite so well. The best way to describe it is I’m built rather like a badly woven basket, if you can imagine that, which will pull apart.”
