    I’ve heard of not knowing your ass from your elbow, but this is ridiculous.

  2. evslin says:

    Well, at least whatever was wrong with your anus was fixed?

    (ok, probably not)

  3. Tank says:

    sometimes the jokes just write themselves

  4. 44 in a Row says:

    What’s the problem? Some people pay a lot for a new anus. She got a new anus for free.

  5. geeky_reader says:

    “I went into surgery for a leg operation and all I got was this lousy new anus.”

  6. homerjay says:

    Look on the bright side, she will likely never suffer from incontinence.

  7. BugMeNot2 says:

    Rectum, damn near killed them.

    They’ll really have to pay out the ass on this one.

    Okay, I’ll stop.

  8. DrGirlfriend says:

    You know, that’s crazy and irresponsible and all, but for a lot of people, a shiny new anus may not be a bad thing to get.

  9. TheBigLewinski says:

    Pucker Up please…

  10. homerjay says:

    She didn’t even get a chance to kiss her ass goodbye.

    Rectum? Damn near Killed Em!

    Sorry, couldn’t resist..

  12. What do you think the conversation in the OR was?

    Surgeon 1: Is there anything wrong w/ this anus?

    Surgeon 2: I don’t know. Hold on. ::removes anus and points it towards nurse:: Does this smell bad to you?

  13. m4ximusprim3 says:

    I don’t know why, but all I can picture is that etrade commercial with the guy with money coming out the wazoo.

  14. statnut says:

    On the upside, she’ll be hit with certain crowds.

  15. Me - now with more humidity says:

    Isn’t Anus that new model from Saturn?

    SHE is suing? What about the poor dude who now has to go back on the waiting list for a new anus? He probably crapped his pants when he heard about this.

    You know, when my parents used to tell me that doctors had their heads so far up their ass, I didn’t realize they meant the patient’s asses. Now I know that proctologists aren’t the only doctors to avoid.

  18. Trai_Dep says:

    Considering most Fox News viewers have their heads up their asses, this is probably the most pertinent news story they’ve covered all year.

  19. Rectilinear Propagation says:

    I agree with Troy F., they should both be suing this hospital. How do you screw that up? Couldn’t they tell there was nothing wrong after they started the operation? Didn’t bother anyone when they saw on the chart that the patient was a male and the person on the table was a female?

    Also, how does she not need to get surgery to undo what they did to her? How does she go to the bathroom? Wouldn’t whatever they’d do to fix incontinence make it difficult for someone without that problem to go?

  20. cmdr.sass says:

    Did they have to take her out to dinner and then get her all liquored up first?

  21. homerjay says:

    Okay, whats with all these star commenters? What does that mean???

  22. geeky_reader says:

    @Trai_Dep: I agree. They actually won me over briefly today for this story as well.

  23. synergy says:

    @$$holes!

  24. Shannon says:

    I laughed so hard I cried reading these comments. Butt on a serious note, I think she’s being a total asshole about all of this.

  25. jgodsey says:

    what did they do with her old one?

  26. clevershark says:

    She’s REALLY angry about this, in fact she’s sworn that SHE was now going to tear THEM a new one…

  27. Dervish says:

    @DrGirlfriend: As long as my new anus is shiny, I think I’d be pretty cool with it.

    @Shannon: Absolutely loved the “butt” slipped in there.

    Click once != post twice.

    hope the doctor doesn’t bill him. plus, he is now a millionaire

  31. RevRagnarok says:

    @Troy F.: Pure gold.

    They do write themselves… Anyway, this just leaves way too many unanswered questions…

    Is it some kind of transplant? Did she just skip some kind of waiting-for-an-anus-donor queue? Is it a guy’s hairy one? I’m an organ donor – does that mean there’s a chance that someday mine might make somebody ‘hole again?!?

    Will she show up in court with a custom tee that says, “My Leg Went to Hochfranken Clinic and All I Got Was This Lousy Anus?”

    (BTW, the people who keep saying “him” – they did confuse two women according to TFA.)
