A group of dissectors have found a unique way of getting one’s “insides out” as they are offering people a two-course meal topped off by the chance to get hold of a scalpel to dig out the insides of a ‘human corpse’.
In what some may consider a stomach-turning choice of dessert, anatomy experts who featured on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den over the summer will allow for people to dissect an uncannily realistic replica of a human corpse.
Attendees of the upcoming event in Cambridge will have a first-hand experience of chopping up VIVIT, weighing an impressive 18 stones and unveiled by ITAE Group, a company specialized in organizing live anatomy events.
Live anatomy events?
The experience will see those quick enough to grab tickets enjoy a two course meal in our operating theatre dining room. The room will plunge to blackout and our centre stage operating theatre will spring into action. Ventilators, a crash trolley and full team will spring will race the clock to save a patients [sic] life as the show opens. A live patient will be rushed through the crowd into the pod before being anaesthetised in a state of panic. Broadcast to our live screens you’ll see Samuel Piri and his clinical team take the scalpel to the patients chest. As the scalpel goes in and the incisions are made the inside organs are revealed and surgery starts…[ellipsis original]
How much, did you ask? Only 76.05 — 970.79 pounds sterling! But wait, don’t answer yet, because you can upgrade to the “Overnight Package for 2 people” which “includes prosecco meet and greet, upgraded nitrile gloves and a room for two people (double or twin) and breakfast 300.00.” (You’d think for those prices they’d at least offer champagne instead of prosecco.)
Vegetarians are welcome: “The meal option is chicken or vegetarian, you will need to contact Anatomy Lab Live after purchasing the ticket to request a vegetarian meal. Chicken will be served by default.”
Where? At the DoubleTree in Cambridge.
The “live” event appears to be staged with a simulated corpse in a moderate state of decay. The first link has pictures, which are rather gruesome, and I say this as a man who has killed, gutted, and eaten many, many donuts.
Of course, all physicians, including those who become executioners, must dissect, but the frivolity attached to these “live events” is new.
This doesn’t appear to reach the level of spirit cooking, as favored by our more progressive political elites. Those enlightened folks actually pretend to eat a corpse, although the do dress in white coats.
