Man grows ear on arm

Australian artist Stelarc is growing an ear on his arm. It's been a project of his years in the making. He first got the idea back in 1996, and it took a while to find doctors willing to do the work. But the ear is pretty well formed now. His final goal is to insert a microphone into his arm ear, and then connect the microphone to the internet, so that people around the world can hear through his arm ear.

He says, "People's reactions range from bemusement to bewilderment to curiosity, but you don't really expect people to understand the art component of all of this."

OO! OO! When he hooks it up can I get him to keep the news an arm away 'cause I don't want to ear about it anymore. Dho!

I guess I'm a 'people' since I don't understand the art component. Maybe if I was an aardvark, I would?

My mother always claimed she had eyes in the back of her head, the better to keep watch over us little hellions.

So I am *supposed* to talk to the hand???
What next, a larynx on his gluteus?
People all over seem to be very confused about how their anatomy is supposed to work.

That is art the in the same way Honey Boo Boo is reality TV. Just another train wreck attracting attention.
