Bodyworlds Uber Alles
My friend Mac says that I'm next, and they'll pose me doing Jazzercize, with legwarmers and a headband.
What's bizzare to me is how quickly they responded, and how immediately they refer me to their own literature as a valid reference point. The Lady Invoked Von Hagen's name with some eerie Messianic undertones. Or maybe I'm overreacting. Here's the e-mail.
