This video shows how a suspicious passer-by single-handedly exposed the fraud of a man who wanted people to think he was legless. The "amputee" beggar was really able-bodied, but had tucked his legs behind him under his clothes.

While his fraud -- and more -- have been exposed, perhaps his flexibiity could get him a job with Cirque du Soleil?

Lead Stories' Trendolizer system detected this as a trending video after it was posted on YouTube.
