What's the Difference Between a Leg and an Anus?

If you don't know, then you're probably one of the surgeons in the following news article:


Pensioner gets bum's rush on op

March 19, 2008 12:00am

A GERMAN pensioner is taking a hospital to court after she turned up for a leg operation - and got a new anus instead.

The woman woke up to find she had been mixed up with another patient suffering from incontinence who was to have surgery on her sphincter.

The clinic in Hochfranken, Bavaria, has since suspended the surgical team.

Now the woman is planning to sue the hospital - although she still needs the leg operation and is searching for another hospital to do it.


I'm still not quite sure what the outcome is. Does this mean her bathroom trips are now completed in half the time? Will the people at Charmin hire her as a new spokeswoman? What will this do to her dry cleaning bill? Can she now harmonize with herself when she farts?

So many few answers.
