What's so surprising about that? Haven't they ever heard of a homunculus?

You're finally posting something that's a week or so old? What's with that, Professor. You're usually right on all the new stuff.

Give her a break. The guy lived.

Wow, I was all set to make fun of that headline before I clicked on the link. Startling image, indeed.

The world's first Photoshop of an ultrasound image!

Pareidolia is awesome.

OK, put that picture on cigarettes packs and it will end smoking in pick up bars.

Coketown said...

I'm trying to think of who it looks like. I'm usually so good at that. Dick Gephardt maybe?

Cancerous testicles? Stick to tits, Althouse; they're what you're good at.

Strangely, ultrasound images of an ovary also show a man screaming.

Psychedelic George said...

That's nuts.

dbp said...

He doesn't look like he is in agony, he looks like he is confused. How did I end up in some guys ball sack?

edutcher said...

If nothing else gives the guys around here religion, that will.

Freeman Hunt said...

One day at St. God's Memorial Hospital...

"Dude! Check this out: this guy's ball looks like a face!"
"Whoa, it looks totally pissed, dude."

Why is this news?

YoungHegelian said...

I think the tumorous testicle deserves its own show on the Oprah Network.

Some topics for the first shows:

"My neighbor is a nut."
"I got sacked from my job"
"Foul Ball -- an autobiography"

I'm here all week!

If that's what his testicle looked like, why not ultrasound the rest of him? There's no telling what kind of newspaper fodder he may have elsewhere.

sonicfrog said...

Already captioned it!!!!!

“Pardon me, do you have any Gray Poupon???”.

“Don’t Lase Me Bro!!!!”

Even more stunning was the audio playback, in which the contemplative testicle head was heard asking “Hey, did any of my little guys hit their mark?”.

Palladian,

When you saw the left testicle, did it remind you of home?

The word verification knows all.

"Tumor stared right back at doctors.""


There's a joke about staring into the abyss and having it stare back at you in there somewhere... but I can't quite put my finger on it.

So much for HIPAA. Or is there an exception if you show private medical info of people who live in other countries?

Meh, won't matter soon as the government will have all of that info anyway and there is really no other entity from whom it is more imperative to hide your health information.

The medical examiner is awakened at 3 a.m. by a phone call from the assistant ME. "Boss!" the younger ME said excitedly,"You've got to get down here and sees this!"

"What is it?" the groggy examiner asked.

"I can't tell, you've just got to see this!" came the reply.

30 minutes later the ME trudges into the morgue. "This better be important." he grumbles to his assistant. "Oh! It is! It's amazing!" gushed the youngster.

On the gurney lies a body devoid of clothes, face down, with a cork in its rectum.

"This is it!" barks the angry boss, "I've seen coke bottles and hamsters! This is nothing!"

"NO! No!"says the junior ME. "Watch this!" And he pulls the cork out of the rectum.

Which begins to whistle "Dixie".

He replaces the cork, silencing the disturbing rendition.

Like an eager puppy he turns to his boss, "Well?" he asks, "have you ever seen anything like THAT?"

The Medical Examiner turns an astounded face towards the Jr. ME.

"Let me get this straight" he says. "You woke me up at 3 o'clock in the morning,to get dressed, come down here,just to listen to some asshole WHISTLE "DIXIE"!" he ends furiously!

Not sure how HIPAA would apply but it certainly has provisions for deidentified Personal Health Information (PIH)
