The internet is full of unbelievable photos of people who have done incredible things to their body for unknowable reasons. This week has brought us one of the most shocking body transformations in recent memory. A man named Ted Richards cut off his ears in order to make himself look more like his beloved pet parrot.
The sleek look of slicing off both ears in conjunction with some heavy-duty face and eyeball tattooing does actually work to make Mr. Richards resemble the colorful creature. But you need to see it for yourself to believe it. Check out the photos below, courtesy of Dan Regan from South West News Service.
