Its Not a Quasi-modo Its The Real Modo, There WAS a Hunch Back of Notre Dame

And now for something completely different...

The Story of the Hunchback of Notre Dame was always considered a figment of Victor Hugo's imagination, but a new discovery indicates that there was am actual human working a the French Cathedral that may have inspired the famous tale. In other words he wasn't just a quasi-modo, but he was a very real modo.

The "find" was the memiors of Henry Sibson, a 19th-century British sculptor who was employed at the cathedral at around the time the book was written and who describes a hunched back stonemason also working there.
