An unpopular young med student had been particularly annoying one day and some of her classmates decided to play a trick on her. They snuck into her room after she’d gone to bed and placed an amputated arm into bed with her. The next morning they anxiously awaited her reaction but got none. Eventually they went up to check on her and found her sitting on the bed, moaning and gurgling as she gnawed on the arm.

    i think that she thinks that she murdered someone and that the person she thought she murdered found her and now she went insane because she thought she got away with it but the ghost came back to find her. And all the thinking she thought made her hungry.

    When will people learn to not put amputated limbs in people’s bedrooms? Those stories never end well.

    I’ve heard this story before, but with a better ending. She has a heart attack or something like that. I don’t know about this ending, it’s a bit bizzare.

    Hmm, in the version I know, they were all jealous because she was “miss perfect”. So, they tied a dismembered hand to the light in her closet. She didn’t show up in class the next day, so they searched for her. That night, they found her in the corner of her closet, in the dark, rocking back and forth, mumbling. This one is a bit more gorey.

      Yeah, I read it in this kid’s book, “Scary Stories to tell in the Dark.” They called it, Dead Man’s Hand, and I guess at the end they just found her huddled in a corner mumbling to herself.

    Omnomnom indeed.

    This pasta is rather juvenile, but I suppose some might find it frightening. Especially if you have friends in the medical field.

    It would only be really scary if it happened in real life.

    Otherwise… sounds like something from Goosebumps.
