Peeling a Potato!

After plucking a large potato from it's cozy burlap home with my left hand and rousing my trusty peeling utensil from it's dark lair I find myself standing at a sink to peel into.

Biceps Brachii, Brachialis, Bracioradialis, Palmaris Longus and Flexor Carpi Radialis flex my forearms at the Humero-Ulnar joints on a Medio-Lateral axis and are antagonized by Triceps Brachii and Anconeus in the Saggital Plane.
The Deltoids, Lattssimus Dorsi, Teres Major, Pectoralis Major, and Subscapularis medially rotate my Humerii at the Gleno-Humeral joints on a Vertical-Infrosuperior axis in the Transverse plane and are antagonized by the Deltoid, Infraspinatus and Teres Minor.
Biceps Brachii and the Supinator Supinate my left forearm and Pronator Teres and Pronator Quadratus pronate my right forearm, both at the proximal and distal Radio-Ulnar joints and on the Vertical-Infrosuperior axis in the Coronal plane. The antagonists of the right forearm are Biceps Brachii and the supinators, Pronaor Teres and Pronator Quadratus are the antagonists of the left forearm.

Flexor Digitorum Superficialis, Flexor Digitorum Profundus, Flexor Digiti Minimi Brevis and the Lumbricals flex my phalanges and are antagonized by Extensor Digitorum and Extensor Indicus on a Mediolateral axis in the Saggital plane at the Metacarpophalangeal joints of my left hand, these muscles become neutralizers as they grasp the potato in my left hand.

Flexor Digitorum Superficialis, Flexor Digitorum Profundus and Flexor Digiti Minimi Brevis also act as neutralizers to the phalanges on my right hand on the Mediolateral axis in the Saggital plane while my thumb opposes the handle of the peeler at the first Metacarpal-phalangeal joint on the Anterio-postserior axis in the Coronal plane as the second through fifth fingers flex at their Metacarpal-phalange joints on the Medio-lateral axis in the Saggital plane to keep hold of the peeler's handle.

The Scapula becomes the point of fixation for my right arm at the Glenohumeral joint as Pectoralis Major, Pectoralis Minor, the Rhomboids, Levator scapula, Trapezieus and Supraspinatus fix the Scapula at the Sterno-clavicular and Acromial-clavicular joints so that the Humerus can become fixed by the Deltoid and Pectoralis major at the Glenohumeral joint.

All that so Anconeus and the Triceps brachii can extend the forearm at the Humeroulnar joint on the Mediolateral axis while Biceps brachii, Brachiallis, Brachioradialis, Flexor Carpi Radialis and Palmaris longus act as antagonists and the Ulna can simultaneously deviate at the Radiocarpal joint on an Anterio-posterior axis just enough to peel a strip of skin from the potato's lumpy form.


I didn't understand it for two weeks and I wrote it out in 30 minutes at midnight last night :D
