Dead cockroach on autopsy/necropsy table as legitimate specimen;
goldfish processed as patient "Barry Cuda"; change family photos to
total strangers; butterscotch pudding in (unused) specimen jar and
subsequent tasting with applicator stick; activated charcoal on oculars
(a la Colonel Potter in MASH); single hair attached to ocular with
super-glue (tickling nose); cut fingertips off gloves; pumpkin/squash in
animal shapes to slide; bug in block;
(toy rat to morph into histo lab mascot complete with appropriate
holiday costume); process beef jerky as legitimate specimen; light
coating of oil on 'scope oculars; - and the latest one I just received -
a small slip of paper on the underside of the (computer's) mouse.  Oh -
the joy!  What shall I do first?!  Happy Annoying!  This ought to cover
the last several months I've not done the Friday Hour of Fuming...
