Pathologists and mortuary assistants were a strange group with a humour known to themselves.
When a famous singer died of an OD his rather massive appendage was stuck on the mortuary wall for several days like an elephants trunk.
The same pathologist used to enjoy the bodies fished out the Thames by Thames Division. They were very bloated and full of gas.
Before his abdominal incisions he would thrust a long hollow needle into the gut to release the gas. The smell was awful so he got his ronson out and created a oil rig fire.

I am sure most undertakers are fine.
It’s just the two spivs who turned up in a van with blacked out windows at the back door of Harrow Rd morgue were a disgrace to the profession. The morgue attendant was equally insensitive but I guess intelligence is not required for the job. How they behaved in front of two grieving elderly parents was reprehensible and I reported their actions.
That's disgusting. Is it true though? Large organisations tend to have stories that go around. We have some that have been doing the rounds since the 60s and I have heard some from other industries that are very similar to our own.
I haven't checked but have a feeling that tales of glory days from our correspondent take on a more fanciful tone once the sun's over the yardarm.

Probably seems like a good idea at the time.
Plus a ready made audience.

If you think so Douglas.
I`m not saying that the OP is lying but there are lots of rumours in large organisations that become embellished by people over the years. Someone tells someone something and that is repeated to others and before you know it, everyone is talking about it and because everyone is talking about it people think it must be true.

I would guess the only evisceration you may have attended was that of a Haggis with your other dour buddies.
It would seem that might fairly scunner you to. :-(

I've never attended an "evisceration", but have dealt with many dead bodies. I am not even religious, and I know they aren't "there" and have no idea, but it is still natural to be kind and gentle and talk to them, make them warm and "comfortable". (That probably sounds silly), but you treat them the same way you would if they were alive... or if all their relatives were present, say. There has to be something wrong with people who feel this is a normal way to behave.
Pixie//it is still natural to be kind and gentle and talk to them, make them warm and "comfortable". (That probably sounds silly)//
Not at all silly. I was holding my mum’s hand as she was dying. When she was gone my dad told me to put her arm under the cover otherwise she’d get cold.

The thought of anyone doing something with a dead body is abhorrent.
Not silly at all Pixie, indeed on the day my Husband died our 5 year old Grandson got under the covers with him to keep him warm as he said his hands were cold.
That’s lovely, mamya.
Bless him, mamya... I don't even believe in life after death... but these are clearly human people. It is just not natural to abuse them, just because you can.
We still follow the tradition of opening a window, to let the spirit out... and I don't even believe in it! X
What's the difference between Pan Am's Economy and First Class? About 2 miles..
You're my hero retrograde. Truly one to admire.
Not the answer, but I was once in Hospital where a person I knew was dieing. No one was quite sure if the man had actually died or not . Someone said ''Feel his feet , on one ever died with cold feet !'' The patient opened his eyes and said 'Joan of Ark did' !
Leaving aside the appalling total lack of respect, I don't think the penile display is even funny anyway. Very immature.
I suspect Joan of Arc had very hot feet when she died...!
