The dead cow lecture

You all know I would never take pleasure in anything like what I am about to post. Brittani passed this on to me, and almost died laughing. So, this is all her fault.

This is the best example for paying attention that I have ever heard.
First-year students at the Purdue Vet School were attending their first
anatomy class with a real dead cow. They all gathered around the surgery
table with the body covered with a white sheet.

The professor started the class by telling them, "In Veterinary medicine it
is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor. The first is that
you not be disgusted by anything involving the animal's body." For an
example, the professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt
of the cow, withdrew it, and stuck his finger in his mouth. "Go ahead and do
the same thing," he told his students.

The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but eventually took
turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead cow and sucking on it.

When everyone finished, the Professor looked a them and said, "The second
most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger and
sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention. Life's tough but it's
even tougher if you're stupid."

Children and their immaturity. Hehe.

wow, no one paid attention to details.

My dad (who used to be a chemistry teacher) told this one, except he had a flask of urine instead of the cow. Good stuff.

Oh the jokes we can tell when people do not pay attention.
