GROSS Anatomy

My wife is buggin' me to go see this Body exhibit. Have you seen this thing? Apparently there are several of these things around the world and they are comprised of all these dead people that have donated themselves to science. Then in return for their good deeds, they have been re-paid by being turned inside out and put on display. They are basically mummified and posed in all these awkward positions. Maybe it's just me, but this just gives me the heebie jeebies. As an aside, what is a heebie jeebie and are they contagious?

I don't get it. These are dead human corpses people! Gross! To make matters worse I checked out the website and I'll be damned if they aren't selling merchandise. Oh I realize that merchandising is the sweetest nugget when it comes to this sort of thing, but seriously people. A key chain with one of these zombified homo sapiens?
I have to believe that these things are coming alive at night just like in that lame ass movie A Night at the Museum. You thought Ben Stiller had it bad with that cheeky little monkey stealing his keys all the time. Mix in some zombies looking to satisfy their need for brains and that little monkey will look like a chia pet in comparison. (Notice the inclusion of my previous two blogs?)

So this is one of those things that I believe I will have to give in to, because she said please like a thousand times. I have no desire to go see these freaky things, but I probably will because that's just the kind of guy that I am. Don't worry, I'll get mine by making her do something she absolutely doesn't want to do. Compromise is a lovely thing!

You're going to get her to eat seafood?

That's messed up, Rich.

I agree. I have no desire to go see dead corpses. Call me crazy.

I actually got her to taste the lobster at our anniversary dinner.
I am going to save this trump card for something REALLY special.

I'm going. Who doesn't love dead bodies frozen in time? Communists, that's who.

Rich said...

Communists? I think not. People that love dead bodies probably also like frequenting "clean" mormon "intimacy boutique"

Well I'm the opposite. I WANTED to see creepy dead bodies, but they just looked like plastic. I was disappointed, but you should like it just fine. There are lots of boobs.

boobs? did i hear boobs? where is this?

I went... on a kinda first date.

Although cool to look at, I agree with the 'plastic' comment. You *know* it is real-but it is not as authentic as you would hope.

And yes, lots of balls and boobs.
