Face transplant woman appears for first time


oh my...it looks...so...fucking unnatural. I'm sorry, I know everyone's so gungho about this face transplant business and how it's going to change the medical community and all but this woman looks like she was mauled by a dog. She was mauled by a dog? It's all coming together now.

The French woman who made medical history as the recipient of a partial face transplant gave the world its first look at the results on Monday.

Anybody ever see Silence of the Lambs?

“I now have a face like everyone else,” Isabelle Dinoire said at her first news conference since the groundbreaking surgery in November.

Well, not really Isabelle. See, my face has kind of, you know, always been mine. Your face belonged to someone else up to a few months ago.

In speech that was heavily slurred, she explained how she was disfigured by a dog bite last year and thanked the family of the donor who gave her new lips, a chin and nose.

Does the donor family get visitation rights to their loved ones old face? I'm just wondering.

Ms. Dinoire appeared to still have great difficulty moving or even closing her mouth, which often hung open.

When she drools is it really her drool or is it...you know what, I'm looking to deep into this. I'm just going to make sure I add a line or two in my Will that no one can have my face. Yeah, I'm selfish like that.

How many pints would THAT take? I reckon it's gotta be a 12 pinter at least.
