Day 21 of the 30 Day Horror Challenge: The Human Centipede Means a World with Less Toilet Paper. RECYCLE!!!

Day 21 - Your favorite medical horror film -

100% medically accurate

I wrote my review of Human Centipede not too long ago, and this film still amazes me. I love that it has inspired such wonderful pieces of art work, toys, video games… Everyone who feels impassioned by the “Pede” seems to create something beautiful with it. It makes the world go round like the Force in Star Wars. I imagine that when John Lennon wrote “Imagine” he pictured Dr. Heiter operating like Dr. Frankenstein to create new life.

As I’ve already written a little something something about Human Centipede let us instead take a pictorial history of some the finer moments in its fame and some of visions of the insect coming into its own. To begin with entries of both centipedes and humans from Wikipedia (because its freeeeeeee):

CENTIPEDES (from Latin prefix centi-, "hundred", and pes, pedis, "foot") are arthropods belonging to the class Chilopoda of the subphylum Myriapoda. They are elongated metameric animals with one pair of legs per body segment. Despite the name, centipedes can have a varying number of legs from under 20 to over 300. Centipedes have an odd number of pairs of legs, e.g. 15 or 17 pairs of legs (30 or 34 legs) but never 16 pairs (32 legs).[1][2] A key trait uniting this group is a pair of venom claws or "forcipules" formed from a modified first appendage. Centipedes are a predominantly carnivorous taxon.[3]:168

Centipedes normally have a drab coloration combining shades of brown and red. Cavernicolous (cave-dwelling) and subterranean species may lack pigmentation and many tropical scolopendromorphs have bright aposematic colours. Size can range from a few millimetres in the smaller lithobiomorphs and geophilomorphs to about 30 cm (12 in) in the largest scolopendromorphs. Centipedes can be found in a wide variety of environments.

HUMANS, known taxonomically as Homo sapiens[3][4] (Latin for "wise man" or "knowing man"),[5] are the only living species in the Homo genus of bipedal primates in Hominidae, the great ape family. Anatomically modern humans originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago, reaching full behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago.[6]

Humans have a highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other living species on Earth. Other higher-level thought processes of humans, such as self-awareness, rationality, and sapience,[7][8][9] are considered to be defining features of what constitutes a "person".[10][11]

Now that we have that straight… the best of the World Wide Centipede:

To end our endeavor down memory lane and medical history I give you… The Ballad of the Human Centipede as recanted by these two guys

-Dr. Jimmy Heiter… (TO BE CONTINUED?)

Afterwards: We are all Deiter Laser. We are also all a human centipede. Also, I didn’t create any of these. I want to make abundantly clear that I wanted to gather some of the great humerous and artistic expressions of Human Centipede love. These people are super creative and I’m glad to know that people are a. out there to create this stuff and b. just because you can eat an insect doesn’t mean you’re the craziest motherfucker on the planet… the creators of this art work clearly have me beat. Mad geniuses!
