No! Not that!

From my first patient of the day:

Dr. Grumpy: "What kind of neck surgery did you have?"

Mr. Neckpain: "It was a bone graft. They put a cadaver in my neck. I mean a bone graft from a cadaver, not the whole cadaver."

I would hope they aren't suddenly installing corpses in people's neck. While funny to hear, the best line I've heard was on the top of a medical chart at a small hospital on rotations, it read "Human versus Cow, Cow prevails" I didn't get much beyond that but knowing that this was in an area where the cows out number the people by a good margin, I wonder about the incident and wonder if a car was involved or some other really strange activities were going on.
