I went to see the "Body Worlds 2" in Toronto, which features dead human bodies hardened and placed in interesting positions, usually without skin. See the website for an example: http://www.bodyworlds.com/en/pages/ausstellung_asien.asp
Anyway, as I looked at all the muscles and tendons and whatnot, I was strongly reminded of turkey. Come to think of it, the only cadavers I ever see are of turkeys and chickens, when I carve them. I got two strong impressions from this remarkable exhibit. First, that our bodies are fragile kludges. Second, they are made entirely of turkey.
