While in college, my friends and I had a theory that the skeletons hanging in many of our science and art classrooms were actually the remains of deceased tenure track professors.  We decided that there was a secret ceremony whenever a professor first received tenure where the rod to support the skeleton was inserted.  So when one of our favorite professors was awarded his tenure, we threw him a "Rodding Ceremony" which was basically just a good old fashion Roast.  During the ceremony, I presented him with these drawings. (No professors were harmed in the making of these drawings)

Haha!  That is a great theory.  My anatomy professor actually did make a hanging skeleton out of the (deceased) head of the dept.  How cool is that?!?

aah!  that is definitely an interesting and potentially viable theory!  I love the story behind your post...that's an awesome ceremony Smiley  the whole thing reminds me of why I never touched the real skeletons, just the plaster replica ones  Tongue
