  2. I’m not sure exactly what is going on here, but I have to agree wuth cook: It amuses me no end.

  3. An implant, not an extraction. I think.

  4. …except I don’t think one has taste buds in one’s stomach…

  5. Yup, he’s doing surgery on the guy’s stomach, and while he’s down there, he slips in a candy cane, because hey, it’s Christmastime. Yeah, he wouldn’t taste it, but meh. Artistic license. He wouldn’t be awake during the surgery either, so.

  6. Curdmugon,

    Have you ever studied anatomy? The doctor obviously added some taste buds to the stomach lining. This is funny because when the kid starts to digest the candy, his new taste buds will recoil in pain. Another piece of evidence, doctors are evil and their antics are funny.

  7. After further review, I agree, implant. But my at first glance, it looked like a gingerbread woman having a c-section, then eating her young. Are candy canes larval gingerbread people? Of course, this is still amusing, just in a somewhat more disturbed way.

  8. When I first read this one, it took a couple re-reads to get it too. Yep, #5 got it, alright. And I think the deliciousness of the candy cane is either artistic license as Count said or psychosomatic. Either way, it’s rather heartwarming in a weird, offbeat way.
