Why didn't anybody tell me my ass was so big?
Due to Teleporter Accident
, incompetent surgery, or a lousy mechanic, a character's head is attached so that their face is dorsal rather than ventral.
This, of course, ignores the various problems that would realistically result.
- In Spaceballs President Skroob beams down to the war room but finds his head in the wrong position, though you can tell from the hands that Mel Brooks simply has his clothes on backwards, and padding in the groin. He's back to normal when they beam him back.
- S.S.D.D: Take a guess how Sticks reattached Tin-Head's head when he insulted him through the reassembly process.
- In Futurama: Bender's Big Score when Bender finds a time-clone body for Hermes' head-in-a-jar Dr. Zoidberg slaps a plaster of Torgo's Executive Powder down on the stump, then Hermes' head, and he's back to normal. Except for one, little, detail.
