Doctors Remove One Arm

Doctors in Shanghai have successfully removed the extra arm on this baby.

It is not clear which arm was actually removed. The lead doctor told the nurse to label the arms with a letter for the location, and then mark the one to be removed with the letter "R".

So she labeled the arms:
R (for 'right')
R (for 'reft')
and so forth.

    Tasteless comment: Would this child have been considered "armed and dangerous?"
    Tasteless comment follow-up: Boy, when they say surgeries cost an arm and a leg...
    Tasteful and genuine comment: Echoing Brendalove, it is truly a blessing indeed that such miracles can be performed these days.
    Tasteless comment bookend: Ya really gotta hand it to the doctor...

    Nice sentiments, Wordnerd, Brenda and Mellie!
