"Bodies: The Exhibition": Anybody See it?
The "Bodies" exhibit down at the South Street Seaport Exhibition Centre has been running longer than Jersey Boys, but I still haven't made it down here, for a variety of reasons.
Firstly, I detest the pretentious spelling of "Centre."
Secondly, if I want to see naked body organs, I can just go to the gym.
And if I want to see dead naked body organs, I can go to the pool at the nursing villa, the one with the sign that says, "By law, anyone with incontinence must wear the proper diapers."
But surely someone has been to see this smash showing of "20 human specimens, 200 organs, and over 2000 fascinating facts about the body."
And while you were on Fulton Street, did you also drop by some other establishment where dead salmon bodies found themselves on your plate?
