Lost in translation

I’ve got a new job... well, nothing too grand, it's more like a 'turn' in a cabaret revue. And I got the job because of one of the ironies of getting older. That being the puzzling paradox of the wasting away of the hair on top of your head while it proliferates on the rest of your body below the eyebrows.
In my case, the hair started falling out wholesale, driving me to take immediate reparative measures. And what do you do when you need to know something - anything?? The fukn internet, of course....!  I got on the internet and discovered that consuming doses of some special hormones can stimulate hair growth. Really and truly. And, you know, if it’s on the interweb it’s true and that’s good enough for me.
I bought a wheelbarrow full these hormones and started guzzling. And the hair grew... and the more hormones I guzzled the more the hair grew. It was unreal the way it grew all over my body - but not on my head! Not one strand grew on the naked pate.
In two weeks I looked like a new species of gorilla.... a bald-headed hairy-backed variety.
My back was like a mammoth-skin rug. My arse was so hairy when I put my undies on it looked like they were full of huntsman spiders.
Freaked, I stopped taking the hormones. But the hair remained; tenaciously remained.
I could sort of put up with the hairy back but not the hairy arse, that was disgusting. Then I had an idea - I decided to get me hairy arse skin peeled. A friend recommended a surgeon who could do something for me on the cheap. The job was simple enough.... just peel the hairy skin off me arse. But then I had the idea that it might be good to swap it with the skin on me head... which would be peeled off and transplanted onto my arse. And I figured that if it worked, all would be well. Well.... well enough; as long as I ended up with a hairy head and a bald arse.
Did I mention the quack was Russian? Well... he was. Or maybe Ukraine or Siberian; I don’t know. But I quickly discovered he wasn’t great with our local lingo… especially the English/Oz-Russian translation bit of it. Or any of it, really. Oddly enough, it turned out that I wasn’t too good with the Russian language so we had a tricky communication problem and I had to sort of mime demonstrate the procedure I was requiring. It took a lot of miming and energetic hand-waving and pointing, and a lot of puzzled looks but eventually he nodded – “Vell… ok. сума ublyudok!”

Whatever he meant by that I now believe he was suggesting that perhaps I should have hired an interpreter because something definitely got mixed up in the miming and the translation of same. After the operation I ended up with my whole - entire - arse transplanted onto my head and my bald head transplanted onto my bummal area!   My arse looks sort of okay.... I’m slowly getting used to the fact that it doesn’t have a bum crack. But the payoff is having my entire hairy arse on my head; every time I fart my hat does a somersault. That’s what got me the job in the cabaret. It makes the kids laugh, I tell yer. And now I also do this thing where put on a bowler hat with a hole in the top and when the hat fills up with farts I light the gas as it comes out the hole and boil the kettle on the blue flame. Now I’m entertaining and useful for the first time in me life!
