I think the hot-tray at the Vietnamese sandwich shop I used to eat at beat their tendon making machine to the punch.

Those are dogs, brap. If it's a high class sandwich shop.

I usually think that making fun of asian people's names is in poor taste, but how can I not when there's a "Ms. Phoo Wey Wey"?

this headline wouldve been 400% funnier if it had been written "here comes the Frankenstein"

wow, the poster forgot to mention the fact that everything isn't perfect yet.

I bet frankenstein's dog wants steak har har, and that jailarity will ensue har har.

Still no cure for science.

Today's fark personals forum-guy has a stick in his ass.

It was frankenstein's monster, not frankenstein

I almost made one of these, but it had a tendon-cy to break down frequently.

/got nuthin', but lots of it.

I dunno...

is this worse than the experiment to grow a human ear on the back of a mouse?

/puttin'on the ritz!

I thought the Japanese had this figured out by now.

Why would we want tendons on the outside?

Then again, it's kind of a cool idea trying to grow weblike natural armor made of connective tissue.

/didn't RTFA

le mew

It's not for having external tendons, but rather for making them outside of the body, and then implanting them... I think

/also didn't RTFA

Am I the only one who thought that said "tentacles" for a moment instead of "tendons"?

I was thinking "about fricken time".

its pronounced "fronkensteen"
2004-06-05 02:06:16 AM  
No one has mentioned Farkenstein yet?
2004-06-05 02:20:22 AM  
HAHAHHA. See. It`s like "Here comes the science", which is funny in it`s own right, except that it`s "Here comes Frankenstein".

See, they took something funny and made it funny by replacing it with something relevent!

/God I hate this cliche. Worst. Cliche. Ever. If you will

I have a new fark cliche for all you Bush haters out there. When someone posts a stupid political incident, put "Bush still favored for reelection" at the end of the headline.
2004-06-05 03:48:03 AM  
all jokes aside, that's some pretty neat stuff

Tendons good, FIRE BAD!

Kerry is to blame? Or Clinton? Or Bush? I think the three of them are teaming up to attack the children.
2004-06-05 06:57:21 AM  
See, THIS = news. Tree dies in some random joe's backyard and becomes totem pole = armpit scrapings.

WTF is wrong with you? Go back to trolling in a political thread, you cock.

Apologies to barjocky.

Here comes the mad science.
2004-06-05 01:27:42 PM  
Look out, BushCo. will find a way to link this to the supposedly 'morally-incorrect' anti-stem cell movement.
2004-06-05 01:46:14 PM  
God Louise, RightWingedTeen, I was being facetious!

/has seen worse 'body modification'

If Casshern can't do it, who can!?
