Terminologia Anatomica (The Apprentice Theme)

Post by Varda » Wed Aug 28, 2013 6:04 pm

Dr. Howell tapped twice on a white band of ligament, directing his students’ attention to the cadaver’s belly. “The abdominal aponeurosis. Covers the rectus abdominis and compresses the viscera.”

Pencils scribbled. Heads bobbed.

“Moving on… Larry, switch to a deep view, please.”

“Sure thing, Doc!” With both hands the cadaver wrenched back another layer of muscle, exposing his innards.

“Note the positions of the internal viscera,” Dr. Howell continued. “The large intestine is especially good eating on a live human. People make a big deal out of the brains, but I say go straight for the guts. Less competition.’

Zombie tale? Ghouls?

Strange. If they are zombies, they are smart. Pretty gross for only 100 words.

It's zombie med school.
Where they're planning to treat uninsured sick people.

If you like quantity over quality, sure. But focusing on the gut, you're going to miss out on the sweetbread.

Very nice.

Bingo! They got smart from eating all those brains. I think zombies could really benefit from an anatomy course.

Maybe the prof is saving those for himself! :P
