Dead Bodies are Definitely Date Worthy

So, I've decided that going to see the Dead Body Exhibit at the Space and Science Centre (officially called Body Worlds 2) would make for a strangely sexy date.

Look at it this way: why do first dates go to scary movies? Well, uncomfortable situations breed the need to seek comfort in other people. So there you are, looking at dead bodies, and getting all squeemish. A little hand-holding is in order, don't you think?

Plus there would be the opportunity to make a lot of ill-humoured black jokes. And who doesn't like a dead body?

The sad thing is, this is just one of the many brilliant date ideas I have up my sleeve.

    To hell with the date! The bodies can't argue with you. :-)

    Ew. I disgust myself. In all seriousness though, is this display travelling? Do you know if it's headed west?

  2. I really don't know. I tried to find out if it's going to Edmonton, but it wasn't clear. It sounds really interesting, and I plan on going regardless. But truth be told, I'm kind of chickenshit and would prefer to go with someone else.

  3. Um, I'm stupid and forgot you live in Burnaby.
    But now I remembered.

  4. You know what would make an even better date? Going to a dead-baby exhibit.

  5. Rob,
    I don't like live babies. Why would I enjoy dead ones? You sound like a pro-life activist.
