A wrestling photo published in a Nov. 6, 2012, edition of The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus appeared on the "Headlines" segment of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Monday night. The above picture of Moline wrestling coach Todd Thompson working with 285-pound junior Adarios Jones during a preseason practice made the cut since it portrays Jones having a third arm.
"Wrestling is a tough sport," Leno said about the picture. "Any advantage you can get, I say use it. Sometimes having that extra arm can be really helpful."
In reality, it was a teammate's arm in the picture as Jones was maneuvering escape moves. Thompson, who did not catch the live viewing of the show, saw the innocent humor in the photo.
"It's pretty fun to be on 'Headlines' with Leno," Thompson said. "Plus, it would definitely be an advantage to have that third arm."
Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.
