(Daily Record (UK))   Let's give a big hand to the doctors who gave this Scots dad who received the 'world's first' double hand transplant for his new lease of life. No, OK how about a fresh two-handed clap?   (dailyrecord.co.uk) divider line

I am still waiting to see if they do a head transplant, or at least a brain transplant.

If you're not in the mood for a deal with the robot devil you could always just go to hand crafters...

He's Scottish so I assume he wore his old hands out drinking double-fisted.

If I didn't have any hands for 13 years I know the first thing I would do. I'd be in my bunk

Doctor says I xcan't clap or fap for 5 days or I'd mess up the surgery.
"Hey Harry.  Check out me and my new thong.  Plus, I just got my buttocks oiled"
Gonna be a long 5 days.

Plot twist: Both hands were put on the same arm.

The newly transplanted hands are insensate, so it would be "The Stranger"

The two-handed clap requires a cream to heal.

Or got them switched, or one with the palm facing the wrong way.

Is I masturbation if it's someone else's hands?

I'm upset they didn't interview his son Scot to hear what he thought about it.

Is I masturbation if it's someone else's hands?


And is it gay if the donor male and the recipient straight?

So many important questions....

If the donor is dead does it make it necrophelia?

I'm assuming because they mentioned it so much that he wouldn't have been given new hands if he wasn't a dad.

How are they claiming this is a world first?

I gather a double hand transplant was done back in 2009. Another double hand transplant was done in 2010, and also in 2011, and 2013. Heck, they even did a double hand transplant on a child in 2015. Just to get fancy a woman's hands were transplanted onto a 16 year old boy in India in 2016. This isn't new.
