#86799 - 11/12/02 04:59 PM acromegaly
In early days of TV, there was a wrestler that got paid mostly for being extremely
grotesque as result of acromegaly. I can't remember his name, and can't find it on
Internet, though I found names of successors with same disease. Hell of a way to
make a living. Of course if the bouts were not phony, he'd have been killed.
P.S. The acromegalic wrestler was called The Angel.
5Fr acromegalie: see ACRO3 & MEGALO36a disease in which there is enlargement of the bones of the head, hands, and feet, resulting from an overproduction of growth hormone that is caused, usually, by a tumor in the pituitary

Thanks, Fiberbabe. Since he did a good deed, I won't call Oakeley an "ath hole".
