There’s nothing surprising about the news that Clay Aiken has once again been caught trolling the internet for gay sex. But there is something surprising to be found in the grainy webcam photos of an unkempt Aiken – something much more revealing than a rudely exposed sexuality could ever be: Clay Aiken has Shannen Doherty Wonky Eye Syndrome.
Look at the headshot of Shannen Doherty, above. Now look at the same shot with a line drawn through her eye, parallel to her lips (here). Next we’ll rotate the entire picture so that the line is horizontal (here). Aargh! (here). Same thing with Clay Aiken, albeit it’s his right eye that’s higher (here). Clay has previously concealed his SDWE Syndrome well, be it with the classic head tilt (see figures A [here] and B [here]), or the disguising bangs (see figures C [here] and D [here]). Whatever the fallout of Clay being caught on Manhunt, one thing remains certain: Clay is now an out-and-proud Shannon Doherty Wonky Eye Syndrome sufferer. Show off your higher eye with pride, Clay!
