P.A. Linebarger

Posted on Monday, August 25th, 2014 by John Wood

Hang on to your hat because what follows is strongman tale like no other: Above you’ll see Mr. P.A. Linebarger, late of San Francisco, California, bending a steel bar in his teeth. Such a feat is, of course, not an uncommon site amongst strongmen, especially the Vaudeville-type, which Linebarger was… but this image was not actually intended to showcase muscular strength, but instead the fact that Linebarger could now continue to perform this feat thanks to the nifty new set of false teeth fashioned for him by the highly unusual dentist “Painless” Parker! Also, check out the forearms, pretty impressive.
