The Brain Mutiny

The monster when freed starts complaining
his noggin's in need of re-braining
Says Ygor, "Use mine,
I need a new spine!
Besides, it will be entertaining!"

Lon Chaney Jr., Sir Cedric Hardwicke and Bela Lugosi in The Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1942), airing tonight on Svengoolie on Me-TV. Here's a link to "Playing a Hunch-back", our previous limerick on this, the fourth Frankenstein film from Universal . Image source: This Island Rod

That made me laugh aloud.

With all the mad science he can marshal,
Using organs to play pass-the-parcel,
The doc swaps cerebella
From two suitable fellas
Plus four shins and a few meta-tarsals.

Ha! GOF is a game of 'who's got the brain', isn't it?
