The masked rainbow-socked-wearing guy you see above goes by a few pseudonyms, like Lobster boy, and our favorite BLACK SCORPION!
Did we mention that he’s awesome? He is also featured in our new book Reality Shock, which, by the way, is now available for sale.
Lobster Claw Syndrome
Black Scorpion aims to change people’s perceptions by helping them realize that “freaks” are no different from anyone else.
Black Scorpion is the creative director, writer, and performer for 999 Eyes Freakshow but he also works at a news station in Austin, Texas, where he’s just known as Jason Black.
He has some very unique features (besides the bright pink bandit mask) … his hands and feet have only three fingers each. It’s called Ectrodactyly, also known as Lobster Claw syndrome.
Performing For A Cause
Black Scorpion aims to change people’s perceptions by helping them realize that “freaks” are not different from any anyone else.

You’ll be seeing him featured in the new book Reality Shock!

“by making them realize that “freaks” are no different from any anyone else….”
That statement in itself is wrong just by the pictures posted along with this article. They most definitely ARE different….by a long shot. They are huge minority compared to the rest of the people on earth.
Hence, they are by very definition…”different”.
Why is the. lobster claw. dude. wearing. all. pink and rainbow stuff. ? I. Thought. this. was. going. to be Bad Ass ? Alot of women out there would really dig the thumbs though
I am utterly shocked at what I am seeing with my own eyes. I didn’t know that this was even possible for a human being to have. As a good fellow American citizen, I have decided to take it into my hands and pray for you. Love you all and have a blessed day. 🙂
