Allograft

I was reading a letter from my health insurer to one of my doctors giving permission to go ahead with a procedure, adding with or without three other add ons. One of those was Allograph.

The transplant of an organ or tissue from one individual to another of the same species with a different genotype. For example, a transplant from one person to another, but not an identical twin, is an allograft.

I told the doctor flat out, don't be transplanting no girly bits, endangering my machoness.
He laughed.

Funny that there's a term specifically for non-twin organ transplants. Though I see the distinction - everyone but twins has the potential to need anti-rejection drugs.

I had a cadaver bone graft done in my mouth a few weeks ago - I have been suddenly craving brains and doing a bit of a shuffle while walking

But the two just can't be related

Wait til your dentist tells you he sees dead people.
