    Doctor Accused of Stealing Cadaver Hand

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...=ENTERTAINMENT

    NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- A doctor has pleaded not guilty to stealing a hand from a New Jersey medical school cadaver and giving it to an exotic dancer, authorities said.

    Ahmed Rashed, a 2005 graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, was charged Monday after voluntarily returning from Los Angeles, where he is in a residency program, said his lawyer, Hassen Abdellah.

    Rashed, 26, is free on $1,000 bail.

    The dancer, Linda Kay, kept the hand in a jar of formaldehyde in her bedroom. Friends have said she called the hand "Freddy."

    I guess we should all rethink ever asking someone to "lend us a hand"? This is just beyond gross! (I am so sorry if I offend anyone with my "attempt" at humor!)

    What a handy paperweight!

    Wonder why the roommate was suicidal - just because he lived with a guy that collected dead people parts, I mean, doesn't everyone?

    I heard Stephen King said he actually was a great person, and had the heart of a small child....... in a jar, on his desk.

    This reminded me of that. I wonder if she asked for the gift? I'd have asked for an eyeball or something.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!
