It's a mannequin type model, and pig organs, but still.

Going out to the same restaurants and bars every week can get pretty boring after a while, but if you like in a large UK city, you now have the chance to spice up your nights on the town in one of the most macabre ways imaginable, thanks to Anatomy Lab Live. The unique experience involves a fancy dinner followed by a live dissection of what looks to be a real human body.
....
Anatomy Lab Live, which debuted recently at the Village Hotel in Solihull, outside Birmingham, starts off with a fancy dinner of salmon, served with roast potatoes, green beans and roasted butternut squash and carrots. Dessert includes apple pie and custard or Eton mess, and for drinks, guests get to choose between wine and beer. As they feast on the generous spread, the only sign that something unnerving is about to happen is a center table full of syringes, medical waste bags and petri dishes.

Surprised they get away with that....I used to be able to get animal hearts/lungs from abattoirs, to use as substitute samples for medical student dissection training in the lab. That's all banned now, due to concerns about CJD etc (even without overt spinal or brain tissue being present).

Bet they still have people fainting on them, despite it being non-human viscera. I saw someone pass-out whilst watching a keyhole surgery demo of removing a 'tumour' (in fructo-reality, just a red grape with a vine trail) being removed from an 'abdomen' (latex sheeting stretched over a mixing-bowl of pink gelatine....the intestines were pork link sausages).

I'm glad to learn that medical students are dissected by trained specialists, and not by ham-fisted amateurs.
As far as I remember, only volunteers were chosen !-) (It must've been a badge of honour, leaving them feeling quite cut-up if they failed selection)

There may be some leg-pulling here (but, at least it's not a bleeding-heart tale...)

You know, this could've been put forward, into the corporate suggestions box. Anything to keep the exam-pass stats as healthy as possible....(well, almost anything: one must draw a line at vivisection. Whenever practicable....:evil: )
