2147: "Appendicitis"

Title-text = "Fortunately, after a brief skirmish, I seem to have gained the upper hand in the battle against my internal organs, at least until they learn to read and find out the mean stuff I've said about them."

I don't remember seeing any XKCD fists before.
Lemonade? ...Aww, ok.

So that's what that was in the third panel, I didn't even notice. Looks ridiculous.

Hiring inexperienced mercenaries to go in first is risky, but veteran organ grinders are hard to find these days.

At least the situation isn't bad enough that they're considering deploying double agents to effect a regime change.

I was going to say "those can't be fists; she's holding up vanquished organs from previous patients", but the current patient has them on the ends of his arms, too.

And now I'm wondering why the pockets on her lab coat are so low, and whether previous lab-coated xkcdites have had the same problem. Pockets are not usually mounted so low that you have to double over to reach into them.

Always thought bodily treason should be an autoimmune disorder or a cancer/tumour. Appendicitis is neither of those. :?

Autoimmune would be a military coup.
And cancer could be terrorist cells, or maybe a religious uprising (growing quickly, infecting other places with splinter groups...?)

You really want someone monkeying around with your organs?
