Who doesn't need a bag of forearms?
Some people's husbands bring home paperwork or stolen stationary. Mine comes home with a bag full of arms. More precisely, it's a bag of arm skins or 'gloves' that cover prosthetic limbs, each one specially sized, moulded, coloured and styled to match the amputee. These are some of the skins that were rejected or never picked up, which kinda makes me sad, but they've gone to a good home at the university, where they'll live a very useful life in the name of science.
I think the fingernails are the creepiest bit... once you get over the whole bag full of arm skins thing, that is.
