It would seem that I have yet another American visitor looking for information on ’2 rectums’. Since last night, I’ve done some deeper research on this matter and would like to now refer you all to the case of Ivan Sanu, a Polish immigrant who entered America in 1932. It was discovered, during his routine medical on Ellis Island, that he had two rectums. He claimed that many members of his family also had two rectums and during the 1890s, four of his uncles had earned good money in the circus when they formed a comedy group and called themselves ‘The Eight Rectums’. Mr. Sanu explained that his condition was in no way debilitating since only one rectum worked at any one time. He did, however, complain that he found it impossible to ride a bicycle and had to wear special trousers the could cater to one extra central buttock.
For more information, I’d suggest you try Sanu’s biography, One Too Many Holes (New York, 1938). There is a film version of his life, ‘Reap the Wild Wind’, which was made in 1942 and starred Ray Milland, only the business of the second rectum was changed for marketing reasons into his having an English accent.
