Ok, so something creepy is happening. I’ve had the “femur” in a bowl of water for about 2 days now. According to the packaging, after 1 hour the 1″ long femur should grow to about 2″. After 6 hours it should be around 3″, and after 12 hours it should be roughly 5-6″ long. The thickness is supposed to grow at the same ratio.
That is clearly not happening! In an attempt to keep this blog PG I’m going to post a link to the photo instead of the photo itself. If you want to see the femur in its current state, please click here. Parents, be advised that the photo is slightly risque to anyone who can make out what the thing is supposed to be. In this photo I’ve drawn over the outline of what the femur looks like in its original size. This photo is a little more descriptive so please don’t click if there are children or others who might object in the room.
Now that you’re all back from viewing the mutant in all its horror….WTF?? How come only the ends are growing? The, uh, longbone is still the exact same size!
Don’t get me wrong, I have no desire for the femur to grow other than for my own amusement and the validation of whatever amount my cousins spent on it. I almost expected it not to grow at all. But only growing at the two ends? This thing is sick, man!
Deawn…where are you? I HAVE to hear your take on this!

That is just way too funny.

Sorry you got a defective femur. I once had a “grow-a-date” that didn’t expand as advertised. Maybe you should demand a refund? 😉
