Getting the wrong kidney removed is bad enough, but what if you went in for leg surgery and had your anus operated on instead? [Fox News] (Thanks to Gregg!)
I’ve heard of not knowing your ass from your elbow, but this is ridiculous.
Well, at least whatever was wrong with your anus was fixed?
(ok, probably not)
sometimes the jokes just write themselves
What’s the problem? Some people pay a lot for a new anus. She got a new anus for free.
“I went into surgery for a leg operation and all I got was this lousy new anus.”
Look on the bright side, she will likely never suffer from incontinence.
Rectum, damn near killed them.
They’ll really have to pay out the ass on this one.
Okay, I’ll stop.
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.
Pucker Up please…
She didn’t even get a chance to kiss her ass goodbye.
Rectum? Damn near Killed Em!
Sorry, couldn’t resist..
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?
I don’t know why, but all I can picture is that etrade commercial with the guy with money coming out the wazoo.
On the upside, she’ll be hit with certain crowds.
Isn’t Anus that new model from Saturn?
what if you went in for leg surgery and had your anus operated on instead?
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.
Considering most Fox News viewers have their heads up their asses, this is probably the most pertinent news story they’ve covered all year.
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?
Did they have to take her out to dinner and then get her all liquored up first?
Okay, whats with all these star commenters? What does that mean???
@Trai_Dep: I agree. They actually won me over briefly today for this story as well.
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.
what did they do with her old one?
She’s REALLY angry about this, in fact she’s sworn that SHE was now going to tear THEM a new one…
@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
@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.)
