I was at the hairdresser the other day, catching up on the celebrity magazines, when I read that actor Peter Fonda was recently in South Africa preparing for his role in a new film biography of Dr. Christian Barnard, the first surgeon to perform a heart transplant.
On a tour of Dr. Barnard's medical facility, Fonda posed a question to the doctor who was showing him around: "Tell me," he asked, "when you transplant a heart from a child to an adult, the heart must be too small. How do you make it fit?"
"Oh," said the good doctor, "we give the patient some absinthe--you know--the French liqueur."
"Really?" asked Fonda incredulously.
"Of course," replied the doctor, "you know that absinthe makes the heart grow, Fonda!"
