I had heard a story last year about some guy who had lost a finger in an accident and the doctors tried to help him out by doing an experimental treatment where they used a crushed up pig bladder somehow and applied it to the damaged tissue. Apparently in this story, the guy’s finger had regenerated and went back to normal. Being a scienc-y person I would have to know more before I felt comfortable really believing it, but it did get me thinking.
I was talking about it with some coworkers and I asked, “So what happened when his finger grew back? Was it a regular finger or a pig finger?” Hence, the drawing where my wild imagination took it. Oink. Oink.
