Rev. Smith’s hand was restored today after he had been without it for nearly three weeks. “It’s still a little bit tender,” said Smith, holding up his newly-restored hand. “I can’t really grasp things with it just yet, but I think that will come in time.” After giving up on tracking down his original severed hand, Smith was briefly depressed until the other night when he was watching reruns of Family Ties on late night TV and happened to see an add for Nivea Hand Restoring Creme. “This stuff is amazing,” said Smith. “In little over 24 hours, my hand is almost completely restored!”
