Mystery Meat, Human Style

I was catching a bus the other day, and this box was awaiting transport. If you enlarge the photo, you can see that the label says: PLEASE RUSH/DONATED HUMAN TISSUE/NOT SUITABLE FOR TRANSPLANT.

What does one do with human tissue, if not transplant it? Perhaps create a cell-culture line? It's all very mysterious.

As I was taking the photo, a bus driver came by and joked with another employee. "What's that for--the barbecue?"

If anyone has a good explanation, please offer it in the comments!

There weren't any fava beans nearby, were there? Or a nice bottle of Chianti?

I'd say it's time to move, really.

And we, in our ignorance, go on and on about bacon!

then let me ask you this 'me', what would one reuse a box that previously held a biohazard for? to carry a picnic lunch in? just wondering.

i put the quotation marks around 'me' tho denote the poster using the name as opposed to refering to me, myself and i. that was the only reason for doing it. i'd be particular as to what i reused a biohazard box for even if it looked uncontaminated. i'm just funny that way i guess.

I personally think we should adopt a "Zero Tolerance" policy for this type of screw up and have the individual who allowed this to happen shot at dawn!

patty, don't let "me" get to "you". "me" apparently thought "you" were being rude, somehow, and anyone who has ever "read" any posts or comments "here" on "WU" would realize "you" don't have a rude "bone" in your body. " :lol: "
