Take, Eat: This is My Cartilage

Sunday morning on my local public radio station, 10:00 to 11:00:

Church Service (G): St. Josef Parish Church in Belm. Sermon: The Rev. Friedhelm Fuest

Then five minutes of news.  Then:

Over Corpses: On the Harvesting and Use of Human Remains (G)

"Skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, corneas, heart-valves: Almost everything in a human corpse can be re-used…"  The documentary featured a trip to a coroner’s lab in Hamburg, during which the bones of a dead woman were removed from her corpse. Accompanied by sawing, sucking sounds, and moist ‘thuds’.

I found that five minutes was not quite enough time for this transition.
