Back of the Line, Twits

Human organs for transplant are not exactly a abundant resource. Thousands of people die every year waiting for a heart, kidney, or what have you. Assuming the donor was willing and wasn't killed to be harvested, why should anybody turn down a matching organ? Superstition, it seems:

Most people have a strong aversion to the idea of receiving a donor organ from a killer, a study suggests.

Those questioned said they would be far happier receiving a transplant from someone with a good moral background, the Cheltenham Science Festival heard.

It follows on from research which found one in three organ transplant patients believe they have taken on some aspects of the donor's personality.
OK, here's the deal. If you are silly enough to think that having the liver of a killer implanted into you will turn you into a killer, you go to the back of the list, all right? We already say that alcoholics can't have new livers and others not willing/able to maintain the upkeep on their new parts don't get one. How about we add a "no irrational twits" clause, too?

For the record, I don't care what you done - I'll take any part of you I need, thank you very much!

I'll take the corneas of a peeping tom - but only if it comes with three years worth of archives.
