Cadaver me not!

In 1963 we made a delivery of a stainless steel sink to the Gross Anatomy Lab at the University of Arkansas Medical School. I was pretty young and naive, but my coworker who was to help me carry the sink to the lab knew what the lab was about. He said he would stay with the truck while I delivered it. I wheeled the sink into the room and almost every table had a cadaver out and students around. When I got back to the truck he said, "Jim, what did you see up there?" I told him there were a lot of dead bodies all over the place. He looked at me with eyes as big as silver dollars and said, "Jim, I'm sure glad I didn't go up there with you!"
