What is Jungleman’s Syndrome?

From Wikipedia:

Jungleman’s Syndrome, also known as Happy Pappy Syndrome, is a chromosomal disease affecting one in 100,000 births in the United States.  Symptoms are apparent from birth and include higher than average birth weight, decreased muscle tone, increased beard tone.

Often confused with accelerated aging disorders such as progeria, Jungleman’s syndrome is distinguished by the only apparent advanced age of its young sufferers, and many go on to lead normal productive lives.  Notable Junglemanites include Martial Arts legend Sammo Hung, Will Ferell (who dramatized a Jungleman’s birth in a notable Saturday Night Live sketch) and Old Dirty Bastard.
