It does so many things (like make insulin) and nobody gives it the respect it deserves.

Yeah but you can manage without a functioning pancreas.... you can manually do what your pancreas does (diabetics do it all the time, watching their blood sugar, injecting insulin, etc.)

If your kidneys, liver, lungs, heart, etc. stop working, you're toast. No way to manage that shit.

I think the skin is very underrated if you ask me.

Yes, but pancreas awareness is groing each day since Weird Al released that pancreas song. It is threads like this, started by pancreas conscious people like you, that will make a difference in changing the public's view of the beloved pancreas.

Don't take your pancreas for granted, there are people in Africa that don't even have a pancreas, THAT is why they don't know it's christmans.

Have love in your pancreas, donate today.

Nobody?  Have you never heard of "Weird Al" Yankovic, or his latest platinum album, Straight Outta Lynwood?

Pancreas — in the style of Brian Wilson


Oooh ooh ooh eeoo ooh ooh
Ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh-oooh oooh
Ooooh

I'm always thinkin' 'bout it
I don't know what I'd do without it
I love, I really love
My pancreas

My spleen just doesn't matter
Don't really care about my bladder
But I don't leave home without
My pancreas

My pancreas is always there for me (ahh oooh ooh)
Secreting those enzymes (bop bop ba-ooh)
Secreting those hormones too
Metabolizing carbohydrates just for me

(Ooga-chaka) Ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) ba-ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) bah (ba-ba-ba)
My pancreas (ooga-chaka)
(Ooga-chaka) Ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) ba-ba ba bow (ooga-chaka)
My pancreas (ooga-chaka)
(Ooga-chaka) Ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) ba-ba-ba bow (ooga-chaka) (ba-ba-ba)
My pancreas (ooga-chaka)
(Ooga-chaka) Ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) ba-ba ba bow (ooga-chaka)
My pancreas (ooga-chaka)

(Ooga-chaka) Ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) ba-ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) bah (ba-ba-ba)
My pancreas (ooga-chaka)
(Ooga-chaka) Ba-ba ba (ooga-chaka) ba-ba ba bow (ooga-chaka)
My pancreas (ooga-chaka)
Oooooh

My pancreas attracts every other pancreas in the universe
With a force (with a force) (with a force) proportional
To the product of their masses
And inversely (Oooh ooh-ooh ooh) proportional
To the distance between them

Woo-ooh woo-ooh woo-ooh woooo
