I was waiting for them to cut the driver in half.

I went to a "Bodies Explored" exhibit this winter -- sliced-n-diced cadavers. Very interesting and educational. Not too creepy. I recommend taking one in if you get the chance.

Not if you quickly wrap them with Saran Wrap. Well you have to wait till they quit wiggling if you want a good leak proof seal.

Yes, true... But all the squealing during the carving process usually puts me off... :rofl:

Sometimes that's true, but sometimes they really deserve it. It's a shame that it's frowned upon in proper society. They ought to make an exception for politicians.

Very cool, too bad they didn't spend any time on the engine and gearbox.
