The Haunted Scrotum

An awesome case of pareidolia:

Mind Hacks:
The case of the haunted scrotum

A 45-year-old man was referred for investigation of an undescended right testis by computed tomography (CT). An ultrasound scan showed a normal testis and epididymis on the left side. The right testis was not visualized in the scrotal sac or in the right inguinal region. On CT scanning of the abdomen and pelvis, the right testis was not identified but the left side of the scrotum seemed to be occupied by a screaming ghostlike apparition (Figure 1). By chance, the distribution of normal anatomical structures within the left side of the scrotum had combined to produce this image. What of the undescended right testis? None was found. If you were a right testis, would you want to share the scrotum with that?

And I might add that "The Haunted Scrotum" would be a great name for a punk rock band.

    Or an Emo band. "Undescended Testicle" would definitely work for Emo.

    I was thinking death-metal nightclub.

    Or else a cocktail:

    The Haunted Scrotum

    1 shot Sambucca della Notte
    1 shot lemon-infused vodka
    Shake together with cracked ice and strain into a very well-chilled, fogged-up glass.

  7. I always like the name "The Colostomy Bags" for a band.... but I'd hate to see what the audience would throw on the stage.
