He'll be back to rotating tires in about a month.

Clearly, this guy has never seen this or he wouldn't be doing this.

Dr. Sergio Canavero has previously admitted, “The final goal is immortality. You bet – there are a few funds working on prolonging life expectancy, and they are well-funded.’

.. and they have huge tracts of land.

Here is one report on how Dr. Canavero will fund his work.

'ultra-rich patients seeking to extend their lives by grafting ageing heads onto fresh, young bodies.'

hugh hefner's been grafting *something* for years

Clearly, this guy is in way over someone's head.

Oh come on, we've all done that, haven't we? Just me?

I believe Bruce Dern played the good doctor in this version of his story.

But the monkey died. John Kevorkian for a new generation?

Keep this report away - very, very far away - from Mr. Manilow.

Wouldn't anyone receiving a head transplant be considered as having a " split Personality?"

" Ok. I goofed up. So you have to put your shirts on the wrong way and walk backwards. What's the big deal ? "

First thing that comes to mind about this story is the 1984 movie with
Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin called All of Me.
"Extend their lives by grafting ageing heads onto fresh, young bodies" indeed.

@MOTW - There is also Steve Martin's 1983 The Man with Two Brains.

Lewis Washkansky is my hero and this little dude is right up there. Meanwhile, cauliflower is back to a price I can live with, and while hubby's flight out of LHR is delayed we're rather he is down there wishing he was up there than ...

Now there's more than one way to get a head...

Don't forget this classic.

Are the major party frontrunners on the list for this service?

On the list? Will, I think they have already had heads switched! And the monkeys want theirs back....

Well, that explains a "certain" candidate's hair.

Obligatory: "Abby something".
