Michelangelo had two hands (not shown)

Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519 world famous scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, and musician had in fact got no hands.

Amazing new findings have found that all his work was achieved using his teeth and feet.

It has long been known that his work showed certain oddities which had been put down to a possible ambidextrous trait.

It is in notes which had been written by Ludovico il Moro who ruled Milan between 1479-99 and to whom Leonardo was sent as ambassador from the Medici court that we have to thank for the new findings.

In his notes he describes how Leonardo lay on wooden planks while painting the Sistine Chapel using his feet, he would hold his brushes between the toes of his right foot while painting with his left foot. This also has a bearing on Leonardo being ambidextrous as his notes go on to say how he would swap around as tiredness set in.

It also proves once and for all that it was Leonardo da Vinci who painted the ceiling and not Michelangelo who was no more than a talented companion of Leonardo.

A spokesman who knows a lot about art stuff said "I can well understand why the Mona Lisa had a smile on her face, imagine having your portrait painted by a man who has his legs up in the air all the time, poor girl wouldn't know where to look"

The news of this exciting find was sent to President Bush who it is known has been an admirer of Leonardo's work for many a long year, he said "I'm sending in the troops, that will sort the bastards out"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
