A very big and gross looking teratoma!

Bongi said...

this one is the skull of a werewolf who die halfway between the transformation between man and wolf.

Opium - interesting answer...

Bongi - hehe. I went with Oyster. Rotten.

emergencyemm said...

It's a cyst! Right?

Gross.

It does kinda look like an oyster, hehe.

Bongi said...

look clearly at the surface of the opened portion. it is a common misconception that the kinetic energy of a silver bullet is the thing that kills a werewolf. this is not true. if this were the case, the composition of the bullet would be of little importance. no, the silver dissipates into the tissue and has a direct and instantaneous toxic effect. the inner surface has a clear silvery appearance. now look at the right (not anatomical) side. there is hair but it is not on the outer surface. when a werewolf is in the human form, he is still growing hair, but he keeps it just below the surface, waiting for full moon and his transformation. the amount of protein he would otherwise use instantaneously at each transformation would render him hypoalbuminaemic and therefore edematous. people only laugh at edematous werewolves. not good for the scare business. on the specimen there is clearly hair below the surface just waiting to erupt.

no, although teratoma is a good guess and on some planets rotten oysters may also look like this (i don't know where cyst came from. this is one freaky cyst) the evidence is overwhelming. it can only be the skull of a partially transformed werewolf who has just had the misfortune of receiving a dose of high velocity silver.

Come on guys, the tumour is clearly her twin.

emergencyemm said...

Perhaps a dermoid cyst? Maybe just a regular cyst?

Ahh, I want to know!!!

Bearded clam?

Kerry said...

I think she grew a testicle. A bit of a genetic freak accident...

Either that, or thanks to the hint, it's a hernia.

Andy Hadfield said...

HOLY SMOKES! You people!

That's pretty fuckin creative. YOU ALL WIN GUEST POSTS ON ALL SCRUBBED UP!

Werewolf. Hernia. Cyst.

What about a werewolf WITH a hernia who then developed a cyst?

But he/she was just "medically" correct. Creativity reigned supreme on this one! :)
