The picture is shocking and unbelievable.

Last year, a mug shot surfaced showing a man, picked up on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute, with only half a head. It was taken by the Miami-Dade Sheriff’s office:

And it’s not a hoax.

Now, the man behind the photo has surfaced again, this time explaining how he got his injury.

A pessimist would say the head is half-empty; an optimist would say the head is half-full.

It’s my bedtime, and I fear if I look at the pix, I will not be able to sleep my usual, fairies, pixie dust happy pictures sleep...
Even just the title of the thread may ruin my slumber.

There was a Simpson’s episode on this.

The cause of Homer having half a head had to do with the devil turning it into a donut.

Not as bad as I thought it would look. You would think they could have put a plate or something there to lift the skin. I don’t understand why they didn’t.

I’ve been thinking about that myself. My best guesses are 1) that the resulting hollow would be a great breeding ground for anaerobic bacteria and/or other parasites, and/or 2) since the procedure was purely cosmetic his insurance (probably Medicaid) wouldn’t cover it. Just guesses, mind you.

If it were me, I would get a prothetic skull made and then have fun with it. You could:

1. Put a little trap door in the side and randomly pull things out while talking to someone, like little birds or loose change.

2. Make a prothetic that looks like an exposed brain. I would also make it throb. Then go into a pharmacy and ask for the aisle where they have something for a bad headache.

3. Instead of a fake exposed brain, it could look like a bunch of circuits. Then ride around on buses and tell people you are a robot from the future.

4. You could have a real arrow go through the prosthetic. When people tell you to stop fooling around with that old gag, you could pull out the real arrow and watch women faint.

Explains his injury? It's quite obvious.

He suffers from severe depression.

Thanks for the link. After scrolling through the index - found the guy.

Ugh! He could wear a prosthetic wig - but it seems he likes the attention.

There are 2 different guys...One has his skull concaved and one of the poster made the remark that when he goes out in the rain, he must get a puddle on his head...Not bad pictures (I am a nurse and have seen much worse) but don’t know why they cannot put a plate in his head to give it a better shape.....
