When I was bored with a bag of gummy bears—the kind of scenario that tended to occur a lot more often when I was seven years old—I used to bite them in half and graft one color head onto another color body. (Or if I was feeling especially subversive, two heads or two bodies together.) Pretty sloppy surgery.
But the blog Instructables has a much more precise and, dare I say, medically sound approach to Gummi Bear Surgery—with a full pictorial step-by-step guide. With a sterile scalpel (okay, X-Acto knife) and a steady hand, he takes on amputations, brain transplants, and the creation of a three-headed bear. Pictures not for the (gelatin-based) faint of heart.
