You see this? Imagine it in black and white and about half the size, and you’ll get an idea of the pictures in my anatomy syllabus-textbook-thingy, written by the course director during the Nixon Administration and apparently illustrated by a three year old with no sense of proportion or relationships.

I mean, the big orange thing in the middle is, I think, supposed to be a uterus, but why does it have a zipper up the middle? Why are the ovary and uterine tube popping out of the fundus, like the spinning thing on a beanie, totally unsupported by mesometrium?

There is also a small plastic earring back (or maybe a cigarette) impaled in the bladder-like thing, and the bizarrely transected rectum appears to be receiving arterial supply and venous drainage directly from the sacrum.

Thank goodness for Netter.

  1. Your observations are EXACTLY as mine. I looked at your picture before reading the post and thought, “Hm. My cadaver’s uterus didn’t have a zipper… Also, does the bladder smoke? And does the human being fart because of a real WHOOPIE CUSHION all up in there?”

    I am sorry that you have to even look at this! Netter Forever.
