Lucky the bag didn’t split in the waves.

(Gross story, mind.)

Strong of stomach, but not even slightly ‘morbidly curious’ enough to look.

I’m not a detective, and none of my speculations will help bring about any resolution or justice for anyone. Suffice it to say that it’s obvious something nefarious happened to a lot of people and it’s just one more sign that the world has some atrocious folks occupying it.

They were all left hands?

reminds me of the kidney donation story: https://youtu.be/D_5nLxZVoPo

Nice one.


#7

Some of them are right hands


#8

Man, sounds like this case has the authorities stumped…

Dammit! I knew I left my bag of hands somewhere!


#12

Gonna be real hard to finger the culprit.


#13

That’s where I left those…sheesh. Mystery solved.


#14

Got to hand it to you I think you are right.

Probably. Also possible that hands had been cut from corpses for some legitimate reason, and a shipping accident happened.

I can imagine certain kinds of researchers needing human hands, and I know that law enforcement sometimes cut hands off of corpses (see Anna Mae Aquash and the FBI) - presumably they get disposed of at some point. In a bag, dumped in the ocean…Ok, maybe wishful thinking.

Possible, but not as probable, unfortunately.


#17

The source article stated that they may have come from a medical facility.

Sounds more like the (hand) waves split in the bag.

Still (h)and all, a bag like that could come in handy.

Especially if one needs a hand disposing of, um, hands!
Hands down it was a medical accident.
(Is it hands all the way down then?)

Where’s that face-palm-hand gif when you need it?
