Inflatable Colon at Union Station

Jenn and the Super Colon

Originally uploaded by tjbax.

So a few of us DC Metrobloggers met up at Union Station on Thursday night to cab over to a few other DC Metrobloggers so there could be communal drinkin’. Before said drinkin’ even started, though, we noticed this giant, inflatable colon on display in the lobby.

But this inflatable colon isn’t just for show, oh no. It’s educational. You can walk through it and see what Crohn’s Disease, polyps, and colorectal cancer look like! So you can, I don’t know, diagnose yourself? Yikes.

Anyway, it was such a surreal experience that we felt the need to share it with you.
