Bring out your dead, bring out your dead...

But I'm not dead yet

Oh you've been feeling poorly for a while now. Probably won't last another day.

Read "Stiff" by Mary Roach and a simple truck full of heads will not seem so unusual any more.

LOL, AA.

But I'm feeling better. I think I'll go for a walk.

Was this like "Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag" with Joe Pesci?

Which was a pretty dumb movie by the way.

Although medical schools such as UT Southwestern used to be the only place to donate your body, new companies have popped up.

Now everyone wants your body.

Unfortunately, it's my DEAD body they want...

*sigh*

That reminds me - I need to clean out the garage.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

You'll be allowed to continue driving with a load of severed heads.

You're not fooling anyone.

Isn't there something you can do?

*WHOP!*

Holy Grail Scene 2

This kind of medical donation gives new meaning to the term 'giving head.' Just sayin'.

LOL Al, classic

Lt. Baker said, "When you are carrying human body parts, it's good to have some documentation that they are legitimate."

Now they tell me!

Beautiful, Bãrön. But in this case, I would not want to be the one GETTING head.

Now, all dead...well, with all dead, there's usually only one thing that you can do.
...
Go through his clothes and look for loose change.
And drive his head around the country in the back of a truck.

I take it, then, that the gentleman who left his leg in his smoker will NOT be donating his body to science.

If his family has a hard time keeping track of his body parts while he's still alive, how much harder will it be once he's dead!

Chris, you can also use 'em as "Head-on-a-Stick" Halloween decorations.

*Snork* @ DPC. You made me spray coffee on my keyboard...

DD, giving it would be less than fun too.

It's so dificult to get a head these days...

The driver and his heads were allowed to go about 10:30 a.m.

*snork*

I have a visual of the guy walking out, followed by the bouncing severed heads...

I blame Stephen King.

In this case, Bãrön, yes. Eeew.

My favorite road sign is always the one that says, "Stop Ahead." We always read it as, "Stop! A head!!"

Siouxie - I thought the same thing. Maybe he'd treat them to ice cream and a movie.

I came here to make a head joke, but see I've been beaten to it. I'm amazed.

Poor widdle heads have no need for SHOES!!!

hehe, Annie. we're not well. I like that.

Butt...they can wear hats.

If they were fish, I could totally understand.

The heads on the truck go round and round...

Well, while y'all are all laughing at this guy, I for one, am grateful. I'm sure he foiled an attack of zombies by cutting off their heads. I always carry a spare chainsaw for just this very reason. One NEVER knows when the zombies will attack. And when every one of you are eaten by zombies, this dude and I will be the ones laughing at you.

Think about it.

*snork*

We thought of that, Casey. Hence the hidden nest of wiccan spiders under your bed. Enjoy.

i thought it was a 'gristle-y' discovery...

Leetie?

Quickly now-
Question: when he was pulled over, he was listening to the radio. What song was playing?
Answer: "I Ain't Got NoBody"
congratulations; give yourself 5 points

case, you forget, mi amiga, that I travel with machete.

Zombies?? BRING 'EM ON!!!

Who says a disembodied head can't wear a shoe?

LOL, CJ!!!! She's on Wyo's spooky bloggers page, too. :-)

Annie, I generally have to avoid footwear that excites my cat. ;-)

Ooooh....booooooots!!!!! *drools*

gjd - those are $985 Marc Jacobs. Keep your cat on a leash, please.

"This is in the top five of the strangest things – maybe the strangest – that I've ever encountered," Hunt County Justice of the Peace Aaron Williams said Monday."

Maybe the strangest? There was doubt? Did he encounter a truck full of severed clown heads last week?

I love that the reporter stated the heads were headed back to a company in Little Rock.

Ooooh....booooooots!!!!! **also** *drools*
*wipes up drool producing nice spit shine*

"gjd - those are $985 Marc Jacobs. Keep your cat on a leash, please."

Marc Jacobs must hate women.

After reading Lynne's post, I decided to make a correction in mine:

Shudders. Dang, I HATE clowns.

Will do.

Why can't you ship your human heads by FedEx?
Because they charge an arm and a leg.

Marebear - they're 'headed' to Little Rock for the Annual Mullet Festival and Earwig Convention.

*SNORK* @ Mrs. DPC

Beware of hairballs, Chris.

What is '9' doing here? I thought 7 ate 9.

*snork* @ 9

AS they say, about two dozen heads are better than one.

Thank god it didn't turn out to be a ground beef shipment from China.

That's not kosher, is it?

*changes donor card to specify that I don't want my head in a plastic bag in the back of a truck*

Good advice for the living as well if ya ask me.

GMTA, Wench. that is the first thing that came to mind.

In some parts of the country, at some hours of the day, they would have thought he was trying to sneak his way into the HOV lanes.

green tea SNORK @ !.

Please stop this talk about clowns; I can't stop thinking about "IT"

IT was one of my favorite SK books, Vic. The movie too. Tim Curry was the perfect Pennywise.

Good one !.

Annie: What is '9' doing here? I thought 7 ate 9.

And it was fantastic. Now I need a cigarette.

Do you think these heads experienced "phantom limb" anxiety? How could you tell if they did? Do we want to know?

The truck driver was so incensed at the police for delaying him, he remarked "Heads will roll!"
...so he peeled out, and they did.

Siouxie- Yeah, I loved Pennywise too, not to be confused with his evil step-clown,"Poundfoolish" who was played by Rosie O'Donnell.
Now THAT was scary.

Maybe the heads need a miracle ? Maybe Inigo Montoya needs to get involved ?
**wonders what Billy Crystal and Carol Kane are up to nowadays**

*REALLY BAD JOKE ALERT*
Billy C married some gal named Waterford, so her married name is


never mind

Vic??

*groan*

;-)

Just a note. Vampires die by beheading. Zombies keep biting.

Vic T' ... but before she met him she wuz introduce to Tyrone Power ...

"Crystal - Tyrone"

"Tyrone - Crystal" ...

I'm a bit surprised tho, that no one has noted that Legitmate Human Body Parts wbagnfa Death band ...

True Story (ISIANMTU!)

When PirateBoy was but a wee PirateLad, circa 1985, he needed a cornea transplant. These can only come from cadavers, and the kind families who make organ donation possible.

Or so I thought.

Fast forward 3 years later. I'm at my eye doctor for a checkkup visit. He is located near a very famous teaching hospital whose name rhymes with "University of California Loses Again".

The previous day, the feds had shut down a mortuary in Pasadena. The charge? Running an unlicensed tissue harvesting operation, which they then used for there own (licensed) tissue bank.

So I casually mention to my doctor "Gee, now that the 'xxx' tissue bank has been shut down, I but your supply of donor corneas is just about exhausted, right?"

He said something to the effect of "No, that company is in fine shape. In fact, I sit on their board of directors."

So I corrected him: "No, you sat on their board. Have you read the latest newspapers?"

Turns out that he hadn't heard the news. He went very, very pale, then excused himself to call his lawyers.

Needless to say, today, 20+ years later, 'm happy, healthy, and keeping an eye out (groan!) for all you bloggers!

(And to this very day, I don't have to wait in line at my eye doctor's office....)

As someone mentioned earlier,
Mary Roach's 'Stiff' is a must read for anyone considering donating thier body to science.
I think I'd be alright with medical science but donating my 'used' body to the cause of teaching armies how to more effectively blow up bodies with some life left in'em?
No thanks....

and this comes from someone who dissected bodies in school. It wasn't a pleasant job, but you had to learn, long complicated names for body parts to impress yer patients. Or scare them away (esp in Iowa)

AND *****IANMTU***** -my ex-husband (I married this man) used to carry around Suicide victims brains, on the back of his motorcycle in NYC. I cannot believe what bell this did NOT ring in my head, before I married him. Thank God I'm divorced....

BUT they could make "Reno 911" episode, and catch this guy for real now...

EB.

(P.S. This shoe designer doesn't hate women,he only hates women who would marry Donald Trump)

This story in no way surprised me. I work at UT Southwestern, and our lab used to be near the morgue where they have the willed body program. One morning I was on the elevator when in comes the mortician, pushing a cart filled with several shaved human heads. He smiled and announced, "I'm catering for the faculty culb!". There are a million more stories...When our lab moved, I was both sad and elated.
