Medically accurate game of operation

Medically accurate for the first time ever, and just waiting to be played in your lounge/surgery.

If you didn't play Operation as a kid, the self-proclaimed "Mad doctor's game", you were clearly some kind of loser. Who needs friends, football matches in the park or even sunlight when you can extract the Adam's Apple of a needy alcoholic (we figure, on account of the nose), in return for hundreds of pounds?

Admittedly, if there was just one drawback to the addictive game, it was that it wasn't actually that informative. With made-up anatomy such as Spare Ribs, Funny Bone and Butterflies in Stomach, the game probably wasn't the greatest precursor to medical school, and may have birthed a generation of students expecting handouts for removing patients' body parts.

But, in a move the medical and art world have both been waiting for, artist/designer Jason Freeny has created 'Operate' a scientifically accurate print of the game - complete with working buzzer and nose. Yours for $64 (£40), the updated artwork is a tad pricier than the original, but we fully expect it to be adorning every GP's office around the world within a few weeks.

Still, we dare you to take one look at the below classic (read: old) advert for the game, and tell us you don't want one too...
