Woman Uses Her Super-Bendy Arms To Freak Out Members Of The Public
A woman with super bendy joints uses her unusual party trick to scare strangers in clubs... well, if you're given a gift such as this, you might as well use it to wind people up, eh?
Gemma Colclough, 23, was out with some pals and her brother Scotty in Club Cookies in Dunstable when she decided to show off her bendy arms to get a laugh out of her mates.
In a funny clip filmed in October 2017, Gemma, from Bedfordshire, can be seen tapping a random bloke on the shoulder before pulling her elbow at a bizarre angle - making it look as though it was dislocated.
The poor unsuspecting fella doesn't seem to understand what he's looking at before he walks off out of shot, but then he comes back over and asks if he could get a snap of her bendy arms.
Brother Scotty said: "The guy came over and asked for a photo, which sadly I don't have.
"Gemma does this trick all the time.
"She has been able to do it since birth, she's a weirdo."
Gemma says she has a condition called hypermobility, which her joints are a lot more flexible than the average Joe and, although it looks a bit weird, isn't painful.
Gemma said: "I realised I could move my joints because I was the only one in my classroom that could bend in such ways when asking miss a question.
"My doctor tells me it's bad for my joints, but I think they're just jealous.
"I'm a superhero... my power is bendy elbows!"
So proud of her hypermobility, Gemma said she even practices flexing her joints to make sure they stay bendy.
"I actually practise quite a lot," she added. "Maybe twice daily for about 15 minutes a time.
"Perfection is persistence!
"My hips and legs are hyper mobile as well but not as much as my elbows."
She often uses her trick while out and about and says it makes for some interesting photos.
Gemma added: "It's hard not to do it in public! If you had a superpower like mine, you'd use it, no?
"My family and friends think it's a bit weird but normal is boring right?" Exactly.
