October 16, 2007: Performance artist implants ear on his arm



Daily Mail story that you just can't believe: performance artist Stelios Arcadiou has had this ear implanted under his skin. It's not a fake; it's not plastic. It's a real ear, grown from cells.



But the guy isn't done yet. From the Mail story:

Quote:
I hope to have a tiny microphone implanted to it that will connect with a bluetooth transmitter; that way you can listen to what my ear is hearing.
If you care to. I don't.

What a dropkick.



monster  Tuesday Oct 16 08:30 PM

I don't believe it's a third ear. There are no pictures of his left ear and that is a left ear. I think he was injured and needed a skin transplant on his left ear, so they sewed it into his arm until they were ready to do the transplant. The performance art is in getting people to believe it's a third ear.



freshnesschronic  Tuesday Oct 16 08:55 PM

let me just say
WHY?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Oct 16 08:57 PM

Hmmm, Australian.... just sayin', ya know.



Aliantha  Tuesday Oct 16 09:21 PM

That the man is a fruitloop and that he's Australian? Yes, we have idiots here too.



Slight  Tuesday Oct 16 11:22 PM

NO!


ViennaWaits  Tuesday Oct 16 11:26 PM

Alright. I'll be the first.

Photoshop!!!!!!

:-P



Aliantha  Tuesday Oct 16 11:30 PM

Unbelievable though it may seem rkz, it happens to be true. We have almost the same proportion of idiots here as you do in the US.

I think we have a larger proportion. Much larger.

*dies*



ZenGum  Wednesday Oct 17 01:26 AM

Update: the arm is out of hospital, its hearing has improved, and its only trouble now is that its glasses keep falling off.



SPUCK  Wednesday Oct 17 04:44 AM

What?



Saraax  Wednesday Oct 17 06:32 AM

That guy looks amazingly like the guy who plays Ray Romano's dad.

Played.


Cicero  Wednesday Oct 17 11:02 AM

Well- there are other places he could have chosen to plant the ear. Thank god for small miracles like that one!

I don't believe it's photoshop- but I do believe that since he is aging he is going to have to soak up the cost of a third hearing aide. Not smart.

And when did they implant the butt on his face? It's curious that there's no mention of that in these articles.

I don't know about that. You've got a much larger population base, so for every Australian idiot, you'll need about 15 American idiots to match.

From Reuters, today (http://au.news.yahoo.com/071016/15/14ovo.html) :
An Australian man, clad only in underwear, fell nine stories while trying to build a makeshift plank bridge into a neighbor's flat, but lived to tell the tale. (follow link for more details).

Ok you need fifteen American idiots from today's news, to match that.

That's unless I find another Australian idiot. Then you need thirty.



But the best word on the IotD goes outside the cellar to .... Jeff, Nashville, TN, USA (follow the links to the original article .....

EERIE

I can't believe none of us came up with this. The shame.

I want a vagina on my arm. Then, whenever I want to - Oh, never mind....



dar512  Wednesday Oct 17 03:35 PM

I am beginning to suspect that a lot of performance art is just an excuse to act like a loony and not get put away.

Welcome Aero Geek (I think!)
Why not have the vagina on your forehead - then people can call you c**t-face in polite society.

Aphorisms for our times:
In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is King.
In the country of the deaf, the three-eared man is a publicity hungry show-off.

Good point, Cicero, but there are lots of politicians out there who have had a butt transplanted on their faces, but the media neglects to report it.

And in the country of the hearing also.

Redd Foxx used to have this bit: "What if your ears were on your ass? I know one thing, there wouldn't be much whispering going on. 'Psst...damn baby your ears smell like shit.'"


Aliantha  Thursday Oct 18 02:31 AM

I'm wondering if this guy is one of our customers at work. I thought his face looked kind of familiar so I looked up his last name and we do have some Stilianos' on our books.

God there's some freaks out there with watertanks!

This is a common German expression for people you would otherwise call an @sshole ("Arsch mit Ohren")

You can. The site is for the purpose of selling them. Google basically translates it as "who hasn't run into someone like this." Click on the third menu to enter a form.
