    Carie Murie One time I won 3 Nobel prizes.

    It may be possible to perform brain surgery on a cockroach, but why would they want to?

    Nevin Kicks

    May the Lord be with you.

    Does the brain surgery have to be successful for it to be considered brain surgery?

    Since the Polish wife Maria Skłodowska of Frenchman Pierre Curie, there hasn’t been another two-time winner of Nobel Prizes, has there?

    I’m gonna guess most cockroach brain surgery is less for the cockroach’s benefit, and more like using them as a model to test different nerve injury factors.

    After hitting 45 mph, Kevin had to go back and pick up all of the weeds he dropped along the street.

    I tried googling “do roaches have brain” and the first suggestion that came up was “do roaches have b-lls.” The results for that were inconclusive.

    Why would anyone even WANT to perform brain surgery on cockroaches?

    The only brain surgery I would do on cockroaches is stamp on them heavily while saying, Homer Simpson-like, “You go squish now!”

    A brilliant scientist named Rick Sanchez turned himself into a pickle.

    He became Pickle Rick.

    Pickle Rick was accidently swept into a storm drain. As a picke with a face but no hands, he lured a cockroach over; where he killed it by biting it’s head. Then he ripped the top of the roach’s head off, and used his tongue surgically to illicit movement of the roach’s arms and legs.

    Ultimately this allowed him the necessary mobility to built up to a nano-skeleton and supplemental rat brains that allowed him to escape to Shoney’s Restaurant with his daughter to tie one on. It’s on TV so it must be True!

    Rick and Morty on Cartoon Network. Believe it or not.

    Just because something is possible doesn’t mean we should do it. Look at poor old Dr. Frankenstein!

    Upon her death Madam Curie’s pet reindeer was bequeathed to Kris Kringle.

    Senator Rand Paul used the filibuster to defeat the Republican Health Care Bill that covered Senator Ted Cruz’ proposed cockroach brain surgery.

    The British government put the confiscated wheelbarrow with Nick’s motorized grass seeder and motorized manure spreader.

    I think I found the photo image used for the drawing of Marie Curie above. She looks better in the actual photo.
