Weird! I never knew!

I'm glad my work doesn't involve me having to process squirrels for display :( #treerats4evah

The whole "otters eating urchins turn purple" thing strikes me as fodder for some really solid post-mortem coroner trolling, if that's your sort of thing.

I work next to an anthropology dept. One day they needed my help moving some stuff out of an office. So I found myself picking up a human femur, a monkey skull, and some parts I had no idea what were. When I finally got to the point where I also had a small box with various bones in it I thought, "What if I dumped the femur and a skull someplace where people would find them?" I was imagining the forensics investigation, the murder police, the news cycles, the fun!

It's a testament to my self-control and my continued employment that I am able to resist such urges. I did manage to get my picture taken holding a skull.
