Would you stroll in this colon?

My first reaction upon seeing this hands-on exhibit was digust: shouldn’t some exhibitions be hands-off?  My second reaction was a different kind of disgust: who wants to eat refreshments next to an 8-foot-high section of  bowel?  My third reaction turned to the inevitable jokes about “passing” through.the. strollin colon 

My final emotional destination was admiration: it takes gumption to design a giant inflatable poo chute, and maybe the exhibit is designed to get people through disgust, with good humor, to learn just a few facts that could save a life.  I’ll be honest and admit that I’ll never forget this colon, not ever.      Does that mean the bizarre spectacle worked? I think it does.
