I think we have our first contender for 2012's Headline of the Year.
 
2012-01-04 12:53:25 PM  
Whoa. That headline works on so many levels. Including ground level.
 
2012-01-04 01:32:28 PM  
Stupid metric system.

American measurements please!

Is the patient's name Brett?

I know I'm so going to hell, but something about that first picture made me laugh. It was like the poor guy was melting into a pile of flesh.

In a final request before going under the knife, he asked doctors to bring him Solo and the Wookie.

Damn you.

Wow, that is incredible. So many questions. Can he feel when people touch the tumor? Does it feel like a big flabby beanbag, or is it more solid than that? What the hell is inside it? Does it stink? Does he have any mobility, or is he basically stationary like Jabba on top of that blanket?
 
2012-01-04 01:39:55 PM  
It does however explain what happened to John Leguizamo.
 
2012-01-04 01:40:01 PM  
Hopefully he'll soon be able to do "The Hokey Pokey" without being self-conscious.

Could you imagine if that tumor was just a really bad case of blue balls he's covered up for years? Some girl rubs on it too much and next thing you know she's plastered head to foot to the wall and he gets up and walks out of the room satisfied.

What if they remove it, and it stays alive, all on it's own?

1. Send it to a research station in Antarctica.
2. Kill it with fire.

Then he should have it cremated, and put it in a little box on his piano.

I laughed out loud - much needed this morning. Thank you, sir.

FTA: He's had his right leg amputated at the knee in an attempt to be rid of the thing, so I don't think he's going to be doing the Hokey Pokey in any case.

I guess he'll have to look for a job now that his $10/wk freak show gig is almost over.

Really? Since birth? And they just watched it grow? WTF is wrong with people?

You know that thing where you know something is becoming a problem, and you need to take care of it, but you keep putting it off because you know it's going to be a big hassle when you finally confront it...like mold in your house...or that bumping sound your car is making...

Yeah.

He chose his parents unwisely and ended up being born poor in a poor country that had just gotten out of decades of war ?

Safe bet it ain't candy


No.

It is, essentially, a biopinata. The surgical team will suspend him from the ceiling and a group of blindfolded Mexican children will flail at it with broom handles until it ruptures, discharging its store of toffees and marzipans upon the OR floor. These will be collected and sent to pathology for analysis, as the exact toffee/marzipan ratio gives crucial insight to the nature of the tumor and will assist his physicians in planning the appropriate followup chemotherapy. They are also delicious, and pathologists are notorious for their flabby gluttony.

I can't find a picture that accurately depicts just how much vomit I would expel at seeing something like this.
