Time For Applause?

From AOL News: Double Hand Transplant Patient Speaks
(Sept. 2) -- The recipient of cutting-edge double hand transplant surgery is speaking to the media today and reporting that he can already wiggle his fingers and is able to form half a fist. . . .

"I feel fantastic," he told reporters. "I'm feeling very blessed and thankful for having a new pair of hands."
Very Blessed and Thankful are the two Vegas call girls the patient ordered immediately upon realising he could grab things again.
Doctors at Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's Health Care live-tweeted the entire operation, posting updates about the progress of the surgery in real time on the hospital's Twitter account.
Said Twitter account repeatedly reassures us that the tweeting was not being performed by any of the surgeons actually involved in the operation -- though the lead surgeon was pausing every few minutes to tweak the Hand Transplant Megamix he'd created on iTunes to get them through the procedure. Among the featured songs:

"I Want To Hold Your Hand" by The Beatles
"I Can't Write Left-handed" by Bill Withers
"Shake That" by Eminem

...plus, of course, everything by Nine Inch Nails and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
