I don't get to take the skull home?  Well that sucks.  Why do I have to take home the puppy I adopted, but I am not allowed to take home the skull.

If you did that, you would quickly become known as a Mutterfarker.

Mütter Museum is a freaky MUST SEE in Philly.  They have a decomposing fat lady in a glass box who is turning into soap.

Good stuff!

If I got to bring it home I'd adopt one.

Two questions; Am I allowed to put my hand in it and make it talk, and may I name it Skully?

That was a neat article. I wish there were more articles on Fark like this and less about Zimmerman, people giving their dogs their last hug and stuff from Slate.

They're only trying to get rid of the skull to cover up the fact that his brain went missing.

Not to mention the sponsored links.  Are they still running the one about "Nifty Father's Day Gifts?"  Haven't seen it, lately.

Just a note to subby:

18th century was when the dates had 17's on them, not 18's.

Don't know if you're being sarcastic (my meter's on the fritz) but going to the Mutter was the main reason my wife and I went to Philadelphia a few years ago. And yes, we're going to try to sponsor a skull.

No can do. I adopted a polar bear from the zoo, have to get its habit ready in the crawlspace.

She's not decomposing; she IS soap.  And she has a male companion who can be found at the Smithsonian's Natural History museum in Washington.  The freaky thing about them is that the doctor who was called to examine them when they were dug up lied about how old they were, so they could be donated to the museums.  He claimed they were 18th century, but really they'd only been buried for a couple of decades when they were found at the end of the 19th century.

I have been wondering what to say to materialistic relatives this holiday season. I am gonna try my damnedest for eight.And if the museum ever changes their policies, They can just deliver me the eight heads in a duffle bag.

Was that a press release by Denis Dimbleby Bagley? Publish it in Lancet.

I've handled human skulls, include on with the jaw attached on a hinge.

You can't use it as a hand puppet. They aren't built that way.

/not saying I tried.

//well maybe I did....
