Can "the blob" solve the quesion of trajectory?

Seems to me that if a missile hits a gelatinous substance - like brain matter - from behind, that substance will tend to snap forward in the same direction as the missile before it snaps backward.

It looks like that's what happens to the brain blob in the Z film. First it snaps forward, then it snaps backward as JFK starts to fall.

If there was a shot from anywhere in the front, wouldn't the brain blob first snap in the same direction in which the missile is moving? Back and to the left instead of forward, as it does on the film?

Sorry to self-bump but has anyone out there put any thought into the blob over the years? Surely there must be an animated gif floating in cyberspace...

The blob was added by the animators to simulate an exit wound in the front.

It was so crude that it tipped off many researchers to the animation.

Jack, you got me there. That's an answer I truly wasn't expecting.
