It worries me more that this might be a serious question rather than a joke! No, all human hearts are over to the left. The only exception is patients born with a condition called dextro-cardia, where the heart and chest are reversed. This is sometimes also accompanied by situs inversus, where all the abdominal organs are reversed also.
