I found this short video over at Newgrounds which talks about why Link is not a surgeon. It has several Zelda references including Link getting an item and holding it over his head as a reward, Link slashing away while performing surgery, and last but not least, Link hinting at the the use of time travel to go back and time and redo the surgery.
I have to say it is quite a hilarious video so be sure to head on over to Newgrounds to check it out. Alternatively you can just click read more to watch an embedded version right here at Zelda Dungeon. Let us know what you thought of the video by posting in the comments below.
