Now that's a mishap

German surgeons operate on woman's bowels instead of leg
When it comes to a surgical mistake, this incident may take the cake: A 78-year-old German woman went into the hospital last month to have surgery on her leg. Because of a mixup, Frankenpost reports that she left the Hochfranken-Klinik in Münchberg, Germany, with an artificial anus.
Did they at least fix the leg, too? I didn't even realize they made artificial anuses, and I'm usually on top of these things...
