Famous re-animation expert and bon vivant Doctor Victor Frankenstein today conceded defeat in his bid to cobble together a body from several body parts and bring it back to life using lightning and chemicals.
"It didn't really work out," Frankenstein admitted, quaffing a brandy in a bar by the River Thames in London this lunchtime. "It looked a bit odd for starters, sort of like a human patchwork quilt, and I couldn't get a pair of shoes to fit it anywhere, so I had Ygor knock me up a pair of big clunky boots."
Locals were terrified when Doctor Frankenstein started to apply the electricity, and even more terrified when they found out that that he'd put the brain of a psychopath into the monster, instead of a brain similar to Richard Madeley's. Following a murder or two the locals had had enough.
"I knew it was 'Game Over' when they stormed the castle with flaming torches baying for blood," Frankenstein chuckled. "I'll stick to something safer in future, like stem cell research."
Ygor is currently seeking a job in the cloning industry.
