Random Question

Posted on June 4, 2014 10:00 pm

Saw this headline: “Man Accused of Stealing Human Skin From Hospital

And it made me wonder… is it possible to use the phrase “human skin” in a sentence and NOT have it sound creepy?

Sorta the same shuddery feeling I get whenever I see the phrase “government agents”.

Those words are NEVER used in the delivery of good news.

    Would you be okay with “government agents” tracking down a serial killer in your neighborhood? Or is the serial killer less “creepy” to you?

    … Touched a nerve with Jersey McJones … The humor is in the creepiness of the term ‘government agents.’

    Perhaps someday I’ll make a joke about the service one gets from the DMV, and Jersey will point out how vital their job is.


    On Frank’s birthday, too.

    I once saw a human skin a bear in order to make a really cool rug for his cabin.

    Just wondering…
    Was the person whose skin was stolen raped to death and his flesh eaten? And in what order?

    Using the term “non-human skin” in a sentence ain’t no walk in the park, either.

    @ Vaktatunnen says:

    Yeah. “Alien Skin” adds a whole new dimension of creepiness.

  10. willy says:

    I watched a human skin a user interface once and, yeah, it was creepy.

  11. DonP says:

    gosh, well, lab-grown skin somehow does little to lessen the creepiness. And yeah, that seven layer thing did not help

    Obama, wanted to have some ‘skin in the game’ – – just not his!
