Trickery or not, social media users are having a field day over the apparent Photoshop fail.

“Have spent the entire day laughing at this guy with three hands on #TheApprentice,” Ciara Knight tweeted.

“Right handed, left handed, and underhanded too,” Bob Burghardt tweeted.

Another suggested the show should be called “The Appendage.”

Earlier this year, Vanity Fair magazine was mocked for appearing to give actor Reese Witherspoon a third leg.

“Well…I guess everybody knows now…I have 3 legs. I hope you can still accept me for who I am,” Witherspoon tweeted.

The magazine responded saying it was “just the lining” on Witherspoon’s dress.

However, Oprah Winfrey also appeared in a photo with Witherspoon in the issue of Vanity Fair, giving the TV talk show host a third hand.
