Subject: (urth) In a Pig's Eye

Howdy everyone.

I've been following the pretty high-level discussions going on
concerning Silk-in-Pig, Silk-23 vs Silk-43, etc.  But at the risk of
sounding both mundane and stupid, I need to ask a question regarding
Silk giving his eye to Pig.

Pig is a (smallish) giant, but a giant nonetheless.  He's what, maybe
four or five feet taller than Silk?  Given this, Pig's head might
reasonably be assumed to be twice as big (in diameter) as Silk's head,
with eye sockets proportionately sized.  How plausible is it, then, that
Silk's eye could be successfully transplanted into Pig's eye socket?  I
don't pretend to know much about advanced physiological concepts, but it
seems to me that Silk's eyeball would really have a lot of room in which
to flop around.

Kind-of gives me the willies to think about it.  :-)

Any thoughts?
